Adelaide Wind Orchestra: Arctic Dreams
May 18 - 7:30 PM$10 – $30
Adelaide Wind Orchestra welcomes new Principal Conductor Bryan Griffiths with a seasonally appropriate program of Nordic soundscapes.
Having spent five years with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, Griffiths left for the east coast to hone the art of conducting at the Sydney Conservatorium. Awarded the Australian Postgraduate Ward and Kathleen E Armstrong Bequest for his efforts, Griffiths’ return to Adelaide has seen him work as an Associate Conductor with the Adelaide Youth Orchestra before taking up his new post with one of Australia’s leading wind ensembles.
Featuring music from Pulitzer Prize-winner Michael Colgrass and the Australian premiere of works by Norwegian composer Geirr Tveitt and Finland’s Aulis Sullivan, Griffith’s debut at the helm promises to be a serene evening of Scando-chic winter escapism.
