Edition 182 - Friday 18th November 2022

NSGHS Showcase

Celebrate the musical achievements of North Sydney Girls High School in their Showcase Concert event. Hear from Co-Curricular Music’s senior ensembles performing works by Beethoven, Schumann, Tchaikovsky and more.

This year’s Showcase highlights two Year 12 Music students Sonia Freiburg (cello) and Nicole Hsueh (clarinet) performing solo works from their HSC performance programmes.

Also featured is the Sydney premiere of Restless Oceans by Australian composer Anna Clyne performed by NSG Symphony Orchestra. As a composer, Anna has been described as “fearless” and Restless Oceans is a piece that is intended to embrace the power of women.

The concert concludes with the world premiere of Hold Fast by Edward McKnight (NSGHS Co-Curricular Music Coordinator) performed by a massive 84-piece combined orchestra. Hold Fast has been selected to be the finale of the Regional Youth Orchestra / Australian World Orchestra’s combined performance project at the Sydney Opera House in September 2022.
