ALBANY Sinfonia instrumentalists are bringing fiery energy to their upcoming concert hitting Albany and Denmark next week.

Fire will be performed at Wesley Uniting Church on May 18 and at Denmark Civic Centre on May 19. An additional children’s concert and a Meet the Orchestra event will also take place earlier in the afternoon at Denmark Civic Centre.

Musical director Neville Talbot said the performance would include the likes of the Firebird Suite, Mendel and the Royal Fireworks Music composition.

“There’s fun, serious and eclectic music, and a bit of dance music,” he said.

“By being in a more intimate setting like Wesley Church, it will create a more immersive performance with less bells and whistles; we’ll be more exposed to the audience.”

Mr Talbot said the concert would cover nearly 360 years of orchestral music, and there should be something for everyone to enjoy.

Tickets can be purchased online via or at the door if they are available.

The next major concert for Albany Sinfonia will be a combined effort with the Philharmonic South West from Bunbury and the City of Fremantle Symphony Orchestra in September.
