Last year’s Symphony by the Sea concert at the Coolum Civic Centre was a huge success and tickets are expected to be in demand again for this year’s performance to be held next Saturday.

The annual concert by the Sunshine Coast Symphony Orchestra is the major fundraiser for community watchdog Development Watch and a delightful opportunity for music lovers to hear a 40-piece orchestra in full flight.

Saturday’s concert, which gets underway at 2pm, will include light classical pieces and popular movie themes, including Superman and Lord of the Rings.

The Sunshine Coast Symphony Orchestra celebrated its 35th season last year, and conductor Chas Bromley has performed with many world-renowned artists, including Pavarotti, Kiri Te Kanawa, James Galway, Matt Munro, Frank Sinatra, Peter Allen and Don Burrows.

Tickets will be available at the door, or reserved seats can be bought from the Bank of Queensland in Birtwill Street.

Tickets cost $15 for adults and $12 for concession card holders (seniors and students).

Children under-12 will be admitted free.

Wine, cheese and afternoon tea will be provided and there are great prizes to be won.
