WASO tunes up for Karijini opera

A string quartet from the West Australian Symphony Orchestra will exchange its Perth Concert Hall home for a natural stage in the Kalamina Gorge next week for the 2017 Karijini Experience.

‘Opera in the Gorge’ is just one of more than 30 events that will feature as part of this year’s Karijini Experience, with four of the WA Symphony Orchestra’s musicians to play alongside the Indigenous Wirlarra Ensemble.

Violinists Zak Rowntree and Ellie Lawrence, viola player Ben Caddy, as well as cellist Rod McGrath and education coordinator Fiona Taylor will arrive in Karijini on Tuesday.
