Reviews March 2015

I have recently moved to the Highlands from Sydney.

What I did not expect was to find a fully-fledged symphony orchestra in your midst.

Yesterday I attended the concert of the Southern Highlands Symphony Orchestra and to my great delight heard exhilarating music that made my heart sing.

I have been attending Sydney Symphony Orchestra concerts for many years, but now I only have to travel to Bowral to hear a brilliant orchestra, made up of extremely talented performers with an expert conductor and musical director.

Bravo to the symphony orchestra.

What a great welcome to the Highlands.

Julian Paviour

Inaugural Concert September 2014


Julian Paviour is a musician and educator who has lived in the Southern Highlands almost long enough to be considered a local. During the week, Julian teaches at Moss Vale High School but his versatility on the trumpet has ensured a constantly busy musical life. Although equally at home playing classical music, he has chosen to focus on contemporary forms in recent years. His work during this time has included playing in jazz bands, rock groups, stage bands, concert bands, brass ensembles as well as performing on several recordings. The Haydn Concerto offers an opportunity to focus on classical music again.
