The Adelaide Symphony Orchestra pops up in Parliament House

Following an invitation from the Parliamentary Friends of Orchestral Music group, Symphony Services Australia secured members of the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra for four pop-up performances in Parliament House in late November.

Musicians Emma Perkins, Gillian Braithwaite, Rosemary McGowran and David Sharp performed works by Elgar, Vivaldi, Graeme Koehne, Coldplay and The Beatles in the Marble Foyer and Queen’s Terrace Café.

Demonstrating the can-do attitude for which Australia’s symphony orchestras are famous, the performers enjoyed sharing their skills with audiences ranging from pre-schoolers to MPs and Senators. All were equally enthralled by the beautiful music and professional performances.
