<ul><li><p>2015CONCERTSEASON</p><p>Artistic Director Dr Steven Stanke</p><p>Symphony Central Coast Excite, entrance and inspire through musical excellence</p></li><li><p>02</p><p>To celebrate our new name, Symphony Central Coast, and a new performance venue, we present a wonderful program of stunningly beautiful music and outstanding soloists. Our season starts in March with a concert performance of Bizet's most memorable and loved opera, Carmen, featuring some of the Central Coast's and Sydney's rising opera stars and our long-time performance partner, Central Coast Philharmonia. </p><p>In June we welcome one of Sydney's most accomplished flautists, Svetlana Yaroslavskaya, to perform the charming and expressive Flute Concerto by Jacques Ibert (or Jackie Bear if you're short of time). </p><p>STEVEN STANKE</p><p>Artistic Director's Message</p></li><li><p>03</p><p>We also explore the stunning vistas and creative nationalism in Sibelius' First Symphony and the buzzing energy of Vaughan Williams' overture The Wasps, written as incidental music for a performance of Aristophanes' play at Trinity College, Cambridge. </p><p>Our September concert sweeps you away with 'classic' orchestral favourites, as we perform some of our most requested pieces. Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Mussorgsky, Albinoni: composers you know and love give their most memorable and exciting works. We also continue our exploration of contemporary works by local composers, featuring the Concerto for Trumpet by Joe Wolfe, a longtime member of the SCC. </p><p>In December, pianist Carl Schmidt performs Schubert's colossal 'Wanderer' Fantasy and we conclude our 2015 subscription series with Tchaikovsky's towering monument to Fate, his Fourth Symphony. </p><p>Come with us on our 2015 symphonic voyage! </p></li><li><p>04</p></li><li><p>Conductor STEVEN STANKE</p><p>Chorus Master PHILIP REES</p><p>GEORGES BIZETCarmen</p><p>CARMEN JERMAINE CHAU</p><p>MICHAELA TARYN SRHOJ</p><p>DON JOSE KAINE HAYWARD</p><p>ESCAMILLO ANDREW WILLIAMS</p><p>CENTRAL COAST PHILHARMONIA</p><p>Performed in English</p><p>Spanish heat and gypsy passion are brought to life in Bizet's most memorable opera Carmen. This smouldering femme fatale is one of the most captivating heroines in opera and obsession turns deadly when her gypsy seductions ensnare a love-struck soldier and a swaggering toreador. A riveting drama of love and jealousy, Bizet's Carmen is filled with alluring melodies and captivating dances and is rightly one of the world's most popular operas. </p><p>2:30pm Sunday 22 MARCH 2015</p><p>Love, jealousy, murder!</p><p>CARMEN</p><p>05</p></li><li><p>06</p><p>CARMEN JERMAINE CHAU</p><p>DON JOSE KAINE HAYWARD</p><p>Jermaine Chau, mezzo soprano a recent </p><p>graduate of the Lisa Gasteen National </p><p>Opera Summer School in Brisbane, studied </p><p>opera at the Sydney Conservatorium of </p><p>Music where she took on the role as a </p><p>sassy aunt Fidalma in Cimarosas comic </p><p>opera Il Segreto Matrimonio.
