THE South Side Symphony Orchestra is set to boldly marry the mediums of music and painting at an eclectic performance.
While the orchestra recites the works of composers like Shostakovich, Smetana and Handel, the artists will use the music as inspiration, painting to the sound of the orchestra in front of the audience’s eyes.
Music director Laurissa Wyllie-McCarthy said there was a distinct vibrancy that came from bringing two forms of art together.
“Matila Ghyka said that music always inspired artists,” she said.
“Art in turn inspires creativity in music.”
The program will feature Olman Walley as soloist in Sean O’Boyle’s evocative Concerto for Didgeridoo and Orchestra.
The artworks created by Shared Palette will be auctioned at the end of the performance.
Tickets are $20 adults, $15 concession, $5 children aged six to 16 years and free for those under six.
They are available at trybooking or at the door.
