The Town of Victoria Park will host the annual classical music outdoor event Music by Moonlight on Sunday evening.

Headlined by the WA Youth Orchestra (WAYO), the evening will be a celebratory mixture of local talents and international acts. WAYO will revisit Disney favourites and classic action films and take the audience on a musical journey through Aladdin, Star Wars, Pirates of the Caribbean and Jurassic Park.

Town of Victoria Park deputy mayor Brian Oliver said the annual evening was a great celebration of WA talent.

“Music by Moonlight is a special event where we have the opportunity to recognise talented young musicians,” he said.

“The event is sure to be a wonderful way to end the weekend. So bring your family, friends and neighbours along for a delightful evening of music under the stars.”

This year is the ninth time WAYO has performed, but the 2016 program promises a diverse, international line-up.

Former Cirque de Soleil percussionist Marcus Perrozzi will guest perform, along with award-winning Seychellois artist Grace Barbe.
