   Concert One 2019 

 UCCYO presents "Worlds Apart"  

Come and join our talented young musicians, conducted by Helen Renaud, in a concert of wonderful music from around the world. From the beautiful lakes and mountains of New Zealand with Lilburn's Aotearoa Overture to the noisy and bustling streets of Paris in Gershwin's American in Paris this will be a concert of wonderful melodies and great contrasts. Our talented strings will perform Holberg Suite by Greig, a five-movement work based on 18th century dances before the wind, brass and percussion of the concert band will entertain with a rollicking and humorous jazz inspired Blue Shades by Tichelli. Finally from Russia, one of Prokofiev's most well-known works and his first foray into film music, the Lieutenant Kijé Suite. A concert not to be missed.
