30th Anniversary Gala
Join DSO for a night to remember as we celebrate 30 years as the orchestra of the Northern Territory.
Lachlan Skipworth & Don Nungyarryalu: Yuwani (world premiere)
Mahler: Symphony No. 1 “The Titan”
Conductor: Jonathan Tooby
Soloist: Don Nungyarryalu (vocals and lambirlpil)
Don’t miss the premiere of a new work by celebrated Australian composer Lachlan Skipworth and renowned Numbulwar musician Don Nungyarryalu. Commissioned by DSO especially for this occasion, this work has been written to reflect the spirit of the Territory. We are proud to support new Australian composition and excited to perform a piece written specifically for our orchestra.
Mahler’s first symphony is a work of great scale and ambition, which is sure to capture the hearts and imagination of our audiences and musicians in equal measure. Its triumphant finale closes our gala to herald the orchestra’s exciting next chapter.
This performance is presented in association with Darwin Festival.
