16 October @ St George’s Cathedral ·
Presented by Perth Symphony Orchestra ·

Perth Symphony Orchestra’s ever popular Candlelight series is back after a year’s hiatus, to celebrate and reimagine the music of none other than Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, including a brand new commission by Australian composer Joe Chindamo.

Enjoy a complimentary glass of Silverstream wine as you enter the stunning St. George’s Cathedral, flooded by candlelight and prepare for an uplifting night of music by one of the world’s greatest composers, juxtaposed with works by living composers Joe Chindamo (AUS) and Jonathan Dove (UK) drawing inspiration from Mozart’s musical legacy.

Inspired by Dove’s ‘An Airmail Letter to Mozart’, the program is woven together with letters written by Mozart himself, giving a unique insight into the mind of one of the most famous composers throughout his lifetime.

Doors and bar from 5.30pm, Concert from 6.30pm. Join us in the Burt Hall for a pre-concert talk and drink with composer Joe Chindamo (Melbourne) from 5.45pm – 6pm.
