Join your national orchestra for a moving tribute concert in honour of the Anzacs, who fought together at Gallipoli 100 years ago. In that Anzac spirit we collaborate with the Sydney Symphony to present two world premieres in near-simultaneous concerts.

In his Symphony No. 1, Kiwi composer Michael Williams sets to music soldiers’ letters from the Front. We also premiere Australian composer James Ledger’s work for choir and orchestra, War Music, with words by Paul Kelly.

Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man and Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis complete this special centenary concert as we anticipate the emotions and memories of Anzac Day.
