One of the largest orchestral events in years will take place at the Armidale Exhibition Centre when NECOM presents “The Man From Snowy River Concert” on Friday 11 October. An ensemble made up of adults and students from both Armidale and beyond will be invited to present the entire soundtrack to the iconic Australian movie, performing live and in time to the film. Special guests for this unique concert event will be the composer Bruce Rowland and the original actor from the film, Tom “The Man” Burlinson.
Musicians interested in forming part of the massed orchestra should go to www.necom.org.au/snowy to register their details. Immediately after the 100-minute film, Tom Burlinson will sing an hour of Sinatra classics with a 16-piece big band, so musicians from both jazz and orchestral backgrounds are invited to take part.
