Concert by JSC on Sept 27

The Junior Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of Dushyanthi Perera, will be giving its annual concert on September 27. This event represents the culmination of months of hard work on the part of a dedicated group of young players, and will take place at the auditorium of the Sri Lanka Institute of Tourism.

The JSO will be presenting a challenging and varied programme, that will highlight their progress in terms of orchestral ensemble playing, as well as in interpretation of musical style and period.

Programme highlights include the first movement of Mozart's Jupiter symphony-a stylistically and technically demanding work-and the last movement of Beethoven's iconic 5th symphony, a work no less demanding, and requiring much stamina in addition. Also on the programme is the first orchestral suite from Bizet's well-loved Carmen.

Under the guidance of Dushy Perera, the young musicians of the JSO have been receiving a grounding in the art of playing the classical masters, while also enjoying the works of Romantic composers.

The JSO has been generously supported over the last several years by the Embassy of Norway and Concerts Norway. The SOSL gratefully acknowledges their support in the Orchestra's endeavours, not only in outreach programmes, but also in uplifting standards and educating young musicians in Sri Lanka.
