Don’t Miss: The Last Night of the Proms

November 11, 2021

Experience an unforgettable concert with the electrifying Willoughby Symphony Orchestra, as the orchestra and choir combines with the Pacific Opera to present its beloved Last Night of the Proms symphonic spectacular.

Since its spectacular inception, Willoughby Symphony’s Last Night of the Proms extravaganza has regularly performed to cheering packed houses. Concert-goers should act fast to secure their seats before this year’s concert sells out.

Revel in live performance again and see out 2021 with the very best in music. This year’s concert, conducted by Guy Noble, will feature Australia’s greatest mezzo-soprano Jacqueline Dark. The performances are on the new date of Sunday 5 December 2:00pm and 7:00pm at Chatswood’s The Concourse Concert Hall.

As audiences have come to expect, this concert presents a joyous celebration of masterpieces including Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance Marches, Parry’s Jerusalem, Arne’s Rule Britannia and other beloved symphonic and choral classics under the baton of Guy Noble. Guy has established a reputation as one of Sydney’s most versatile conductors and music entertainers. He has worked with all of the major Australian orchestras and with artists including The Beach Boys, Ben Folds, Dianne Reeve and Yvonne Kenny.

Jacqueline Dark is a special guest and a multiple Helpmann and Green Room Award winner. Ms Dark is a recipient of the Vienna State Opera Award by Opera Foundation Australia and has performed throughout Australia as well as with Opera Hong Kong and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra. She recently performed the role of Mother Abbess in The Sound of Music and also starred in Opera Australia’s Ring Cycle to critical acclaim. In Last Night of the Proms, Ms Dark joins the celebrations to perform moving renditions of Climb Every Mountain from The Sound of Music and other proms classics.
