Canberra Youth Orchestra featuring Concerto Competition Winner, Chayla Ueckert-Smith


CYO50: Canberra Youth Orchestra's Llewellyn Hall concert series

Continuing the Canberra Youth Orchestra’s (CYO) 50th anniversary concert series, concert three features Canberra’s most talented young musicians, including soloists Chayla Ueckert-Smith on oboe and Shirahni Mudaliar on violin, performing on Saturday 26 August, 7.30pm at Llewellyn Hall.

Both current members of the CYO and passionate musicians, Chayla Ueckert-Smith is a fourth year student at the ANU studying a double degree in Music and Visual Arts. Shirahni Mudaliar is a year 12 student at Merici College in Braddon, also studying the Classical Music H Course at the ANU School of Music.

Opening with Shostakovich’s action-packed Festive Overture, the Canberra Youth Orchestra will present a dynamic program including Hindemith’s dramatic Symphonic Metamorphosis of Themes by Carl Maria von Weber and culminating in Stravinsky’s exquisite Suite from Firebird, one of the most engaging pieces for orchestra and audiences alike.

Chayla Ueckert-Smith will be performing ‘Concerto for Oboe and Strings’ by Ralph Vaughan Williams; and Shirahni Mudaliar will perform a movement from ‘Violin Concerto No.3′ by W. A. Mozart.
