Every year the West Australian Symphony Orchestra presents a free concert to the families of Western Australia. This year’s Symphony in the City will be on Saturday December 12th at Langley Park in the city.

Funny man Stephen Curry will be the host and WASO will be performing a range of songs from Raiders of the Lost Ark and ET as well as more traditional pieces by composers such as Mozart, Bach and Holst. A rendition of the 1812 Overture will be accompanied by a pyrotechnic display.
This outdoor concert is free, and while the concert itself starts at 7.30pm there will be a range of activities from 5pm including balloon twisting and face painting for the kids, and performances by the Ray Walker Jazz trio for the adults.
Last year’s concert attracted 20,000 to the event so you will need to come early to find a good spot. Bring a blanket and a picnic and enjoy Perth’s balmy summer evenings.
Parking is always limited in the city, so the best way to get to the concert is by public transport.
Additional ferries and train services will be put on to ensure smooth dispersal of crowds afterwards.
If you prefer a more intimate crowd, the concert will be screened live from 7.30pm to the big screen at the Northbridge Piazza.
