Event runs from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM


Steel City Strings biennial youth program returns in 2021 showcasing some of the region’s most talented young musicians. Hana Lee winner of the recent Concerto Competition of the Wollongong Conservatorium of Music will play a movement of the Mozart Violin Concerto in A Major and Tomas Phillips will play a movement from the achingly beautiful Mozart Clarinet Concerto with the orchestra that includes a number of young players. Young violinist Elliot Winn will be playing some Bach and Vivaldi duets with Artistic Director Kyle Little and vocalist Daisy Pring (featured artist in the NSW School Spectacular last year) brings her contemporary style to the program with special arrangements by composer John Spence of the Wollongong Con. This year the orchestra held a Composition Competition, and the winner was “Recovery” by 17-year-old Western Sydney composer Adriel Sukumar who earns the $1000 prize and the opportunity to have his work performed in our concerts. His composition was inspired by recent disasters and the pandemic still raging across parts of the world. He is a multi-instrumentalist, singer and one of eight winners of Artology’s Fanfare Competition last year. Artistic Director Kyle Little says it is really pleasing to see such promising young performers featured in this year’s program. “It is important for us to continue to provide performance opportunities for emerging artists in our region” he said.
