This year’s annual Symphony by the Sea concert at Coolum will feature not one but two magnificent orchestras.

The Sunshine Coast Symphony Orchestra will be supported by the Sunshine Coast Youth Orchestra for an afternoon of the best loved classics and music from your favourite films.

Music lovers attending next weekend’s concert will be serenaded by a string quartet as they arrive at the Coolum Civic Centre.

The 40-piece Sunshine Coast Symphony Orchestra will be conducted by Adrian King, who has more than 30 years experience in the music industry as a performer, voice coach, music director, adjudicator, arranger and conductor.

Mr King has been at the helm of many thrilling performances at the Royal Albert Hall and with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra.

The Sunshine Coast Symphony Orchestra is now performing its 35th concert season, and is committed to bringing light classical music to Sunshine Coast music lovers.

The Symphony by the Sea concert to be held at the Coolum Civic Centre on Saturday, July 25 from 2pm-5pm, is the major fundraiser for community watchdog Development Watch and an opportunity for music lovers to experience a 40-piece orchestra in full flight.

Reserve tickets can be purchased from the Bank of Queensland in Birtwill Street, Coolum, or at the door on the day of the concert.

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.
