THE Saraton Theatre is set to be blown away tonight as the Northern Sydney Schools Wind Orchestra (NSSWO) takes to the stage.
The 62-member orchestra is made up entirely of children from Years 4-6 and they are being conducted by James Hill, who spent the first 18 years of his life in Grafton. The head conductor hasn't set foot in the Saraton Theatre since it was refurbished and is excited about performing in a venue he grew up attending.
"I have heard from a few people now that it is pretty spectacular inside and it is the perfect venue for our kind of performance," he said.
The orchestra meets once a week for two hours and James is blown away at every rehearsal by the playing standards. As well as the performance at the Saraton tonight, the NSSWO will perform three times at different schools around the area.
The Saraton show will start at 6.30pm and the cost is $5 per person.
