For the first ever, WAAPA at Edith Cowan University is taking its popular annual Halloween concert into the heart of the city – and it’s going to be a lot of fun!
The Symphonic Wind Ensemble presents a program of epic proportions, including a world premiere by WAAPA’s own Jonathan Jie Hong Yang (of Brave the Wave fame) and the Australian premiere of Victoriano Valencia’s Three Colombian Scenes for Alto Saxophone and Band with special guest saxophonist Matt Styles.
For a touch of Halloween madness, there’s Eric Whitacre’s crowd-favourite showpiece, Godzilla Eats Las Vegas!, which invites the performers to do anything to get a laugh – including wearing hilarious costumes, acting out scenes on stage and using crazy video and lighting.
The concert culminates in Wine Dark Sea, a 2014 symphony for band by American composer John Mackey. Inspired by Homer’s epic poem, The Odyssey, this bold and compelling piece combines the full force of the Symphonic Wind Ensemble with percussion, prepared pianos and harps.
“This is the most exciting and ambitious program that SWE has ever put together,” says WAAPA’s Head of Woodwind and Spooktacular music director, Philip Everall. “We can’t wait to get into the Perth Concert Hall – it’s going to be a hoot!”
The staff and students of WAAPA are incredibly happy, excited and privileged to be able to perform for a live audience in this fabulous and iconic venue. So grab your fancy dress costume and we’ll see you there!
