‘Emperor’ Will Be An Unmissable Night of Music In Chatswood

Don’t miss Australian pianist Winnie Su and the acclaimed Willoughby Symphony Orchestra in the upcoming Emperor, at Sydney’s cultural hub The Concourse at Chatswood.

Australian born and raised pianist Winnie Su found her love for the piano at the age of 7, and by 14 she was awarded her licentiate Lmus.A diploma. Winnie is currently in her final year of her undergraduate study at the Royal Northern College of Music. 

On Saturday 20 & Sunday 21 April you can hear the grandeur of Ludwig van Beethoven’s 5th Piano Concerto, Emperor, performed by Winnie Su and the Willoughby Symphony Orchestra under the baton of acclaimed violist and chamber musician, Luke Spicer who is now establishing himself as one of Australia’s foremost young conductors.  

The highly acclaimed Willoughby Symphony Orchestra

This unmissable night of music includes the unveiling of a brand-new work by Ray Lin – winner of the Willoughby Symphony Orchestra’s Young Composer Award for 2024.

Ray Lin’s work is titled ‘Voyage of the Silk Road’ and is described by him as, A sonic exploration that reimagines the journey of a voyage on the ancient trade routes of the Silk Road. Being a bridge of communication between the East and the West, the Silk Road remains an important part of history renowned for its mysterious landscapes, fascinating stories and tales, and its function in connecting different regions via the exchange of goods and culture.”

“The music invites the audience to embark on a journey experiencing the Silk Road voyage from the mystery of the uncertainly in the beginning, through the intense challenges to the soaring triumph at the end, underlining the spirit of exploration and cultural exchange that defined the ancient trade routes.”

Ray Lin’s new work is presented alongside Gustav Holst’s A Somerset Rhapsody and Ralph Vaughan Williams’ exquisite Benedicite, sung by the Willoughby Symphony Choir.
