CELEBRATING A TEN YEAR LONG CLASSICAL HUG

Posted in fremantle, fremantle chamber orchestra, music by freoview on July 20, 2015

The amazing FREMANTLE CHAMBER ORCHESTRA is ten years old and will be celebrating with a concert at the Freo Townhall this Sunday July 26 at 3 pm. Mozart, Bruch, Beethoven and Schubert are on the musical menu so don’t miss it.

Swiss born Hans Hug established the FCO in 2005 and it has been a labour of love for the cellist whose nervous energy and dedication has inspired many young musicians to join the orchestra. They often play for next to nothing and only for love because there has been no substantial funding to support the FCO. In my opinion it has been one of the shortcomings of the City of Fremantle to not embrace the FCO and financially support it and guarantee its future.

I have been to many FCO concerts and the beauty often left me with tears in my eyes as the sublime music touches the soul and one is astounded that musicians so young can be that good.

Paris-based Ollivier-Phillipe Cuneo, who was the conductor of the very first Fremantle Chamber Orchestra performance, will be returning to Fremantle to conduct Sunday’s performance and the one on Saturday at the Perth Town Hall.

Tickets are $ 39.00 for adults, concessions $ $ 33.00 and under 17 years $ 20.00

Saturday July 25. Perth Town Hall. 3 pm. Sunday July 26. Fremantle Townhall. 3 pm
