“I am delighted to host this evening of wonderful Rodgers and Hammerstein music performed by such talented musicians and singers,” said Nicholas Hammond who will host the events.  “These timeless show tunes are an example of the brilliance of the composers, and these concerts will make it possible for more young people to learn and grow as musicians.”

“The Southern Highlands Symphony Orchestra is very excited about performing the music of Rodgers and Hammerstein in two Gala Concerts to raise funds for Alzheimer’s Australia and Scholarship/s for students in the Southern Highlands, said SHSO President Jenette Stiles.  “It is especially exciting for us to have Nicholas Hammond as our Host for the concerts.”

The Southern Highlands Symphony Orchestra was formed to provide concerts of fine music at a high standard on a regular basis. It was set up due to the community interest in establishing a symphony orchestra in the Highlands. It is a Not-for-Profit organisation. Over 50 musicians from the Highlands and surrounding districts rehearse on a regular basis. It was envisaged to be and now is a significant feature of the Highlands cultural life. The Orchestra is conducted by Dr Allan Stiles. Allan has conducted orchestras, bands, choirs and theatre productions over many years.
