If you missed this year’s HONK! Oz festival you now have the chance to enjoy ‘Not The Proms’, a WollCon 50th birthday anniversary concert and a true celebration of Wollongong’s community music.
Not the Proms will be night full of colour, fun and irreverent music, featuring:
The Wollcon Combined Festival Orchestra who will play a romantic repertoire,
The Curious Rendition Orchestra (CROW) providing a world music and pop vibe,
The WollCon Symphonic Band,
The Con Artists who will delight audiences by reliving the magic from the HONK!Oz festival and play with guest soloist Lotte Latukefu, and finally…
Our special guest artists in residence … The Hot Potato Band, a larger-than-life brass collective, setting a new bar for energetic and interactive musical performances.
“These community ensembles are very much part of the Wollongong music scene. They play locally at markets, street corners, parks, outdoor festivals and small community spaces. This concert offers a rare opportunity for the musicians to present their music at The Wollongong Town Hall – with the added exhilaration of an appearance by The Hot Potato Band.” - David Rooney, WollCon - Head of Community Ensembles.
Join us for a fun and explosive community music concert.
