West Australian Symphony Orchestra and Western Australian Youth Orchestra are back on stage together bringing waves of sound to Become Ocean.

Take a plunge into the deepest blue to discover churning waves, eerie calm and some of the greatest wonders of music inspired by the sea.

Awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music, John Luther Adams’ expansive orchestral work Become Ocean is an intimate sonic journey, a musical meditation on the mysterious tides of existence. Hear it performed live in Australia for the first time as part of a program that also features Benjamin Britten’s evocative Four Sea Interludes and a world premiere from Western Australian composer Olivia Davies.

Olivia DAVIES, New Work (World Premiere)
Benjamin BRITTEN, Peter Grimes: Four Sea Interludes
John Luther ADAMS, Become Ocean (Australian Premiere)

WASO & WAYO Side-by-Side partnership supported by Woodside. Presented in association with Perth Festival. Olivia Davies’ New Work commissioned for WASO by Prue Ashurst.
