In light of the prevailing public health situation, West Australian Symphony Orchestra’s CEO Mr Mark Coughlan has announced that they will endeavour to share the magic of music with the community through online performances over the coming weeks and months,
“It’s important to us that we maintain a safe environment for all of our musicians, our employees, our audiences and that we play our role in the wider community effort.
However at WASO we believe that music is a vital part of life and a very important thing in our community. So keep an eye on our channels in the coming weeks and months because we really want to let the music flow on.”
