Romance Under The Stars – Morley

This is really exciting.

The Perth Symphony Orchestra are coming to Morley and everyone is welcome!

The Perth Symphony Orchestra is coming to the Eastern Suburbs for the very first time and they are as excited as we are about it.

The City of Bayswater put on numerous events (movie nights, concerts, night markets etc). A few years ago council supported the concept of spreading the events all around the City rather than continuously being held at one or two regular places.

We were all thinking about what we can do in Central Morley, and Mayor Dan Bull comes out with the idea of seeing if we could get the Perth Symphony Orchestra to come. Cost was a problem, but after negotiations, thinking outside the box and a few sacrifices, it’s now a reality – the staff managed to pull it off.

One of the sacrifices was the marketing budget (newspaper ads etc), so we’re relying a lot on facebook & word of mouth– please help 🙂

Hopefully all the restaurants and businesses in the Morley area will benefit, as it’ll be a perfect early Valentine’s night for couples. Grab a meal, come to the concert and then go and have some drinks afterwards. #Perfect

It was for this reason that the ‘Romance Under the Stars’ was chosen as the theme. The options were :

FAMILY FAVOURITES: a concert featuring TV, film and Disney songs that EVERYONE loves;
NIGHT AT THE OPERA: music theatre hits and opera favourites that everyone sings along to;
ROMANCE UNDER THE STARS: a collection of some of the most romantic songs from Elvis to Queen – a journey of love to warm your heart;
STRINGS SPECTACULAR: from Britney to Coldplay, Radiohead to The Eagles, a night of classic songs reworked for strings and vocals.

Kids are welcome, but there won’t be the rides and kids activities which normally occur (another sacrifice).

Dancing & singing – recommended

We’re expecting a big crowd, and that’ll be the judge on whether anything like this happens again.

Power to the People
