South Perth Sounds

The City of South Perth’s annual summer concert is set to return to the South Perth foreshore on Saturday 24 February 2018 with a brand new name.

South Perth Sounds (formerly the Fiesta Concert), a free community celebration will feature Perth Symphony Orchestra and the WAAPA Gospel Choir as they come together to perform Faith & Freedom: the music of George Michael. The concert follows their sell out performance earlier this year at the Astor Theatre in Mount Lawley which received rave reviews. 

Pack a picnic, bring your family and friends along while you enjoy an evening of your favourite George Michael and WHAM songs with a fresh orchestral twist by Perth Symphony’s strings, drums and percussion.

This event coincides with the Commonwealth Games Queen’s Baton Relay through South Perth adding to the excitement of the day.

“The City’s annual summer concert is one of the highlights of the year,” City of South Perth Mayor Sue Doherty said. 

“Wear your dancing shoes and be prepared to sing and dance the night away as this concert will be a joyous celebration. A much-loved and annual fixture on the City’s cultural calendar, it will once again include a family activity area and gourmet food village, with the evening concluding with a spectacular fireworks display launched from the Swan River.” 

Over summer the City will comes alive with a host of arts, events and cultural activities including the launch of permanent and temporary public art installations, a selection of City and community hosted events, food trucks and free pop-up activities.
