Shared by |tags, ,

Classical music lovers get ready to put this one in your diary, the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra's The Gentle Sax opens to audiences on June 21.

The one-night-only event is a must for anyone with a passion for music and an interest in this very talented performer.

With Baldur Brönnimann as conductor and multi-award-winning saxophonist Amy Dickson playing, it is sure to be a show-stopping performance.

The former Young Australian Artist of the Year will weave her way through a concerto written for her by Ross Edwards and will be accompanied on stage by the best of the TSO.

And while those in the industry will already be well aware of Brönnimann's reputation as a truly exceptional maestro, the performance presents a rare opportunity for those who are new to classical music to learn more about the genre.

In addition to Edward's Full Moon Dances, highlights of the program will include Gyorgy Ligeti's Concert Romanesc and Symphony No 9 by Dmitri Shostakovich.

The Gentle Sax will open at the Princess Theatre in Launceston on June 21 and doors open from 7.00 pm for 7.30pm start. The Hobart performance is at the Federation Concert Hall on 23 June. Put it in your diary.
