Weeks of careful practice, of masterpieces honed to perfection: delight in the Symphony Orchestra of Sri Lanka’s riveting take on a number of classics. The exquisite sound of violins fill the air as the music swells and the crescendo does a breath-taking turn into an eventual end: in celebration of their 60th anniversary, the renowned orchestra presents the ‘SOSL POPS’, a beautiful concert showcasing the cream of local acoustic talent.

One of the oldest orchestras in South Asia, the Symphony Orchestra of Sri Lanka has captivated audiences throughout the years and aims to propel young, budding musicians into the spotlight by bringing forth an opportunity to appear as soloists, together with a symphony orchestra in a mesmerizing public concert.

Why You Should Go

Captivate in the splendour of the scene, as the violin players draw back their hands almost in sync to unleash the elegant sounds of Howard Shore’s ‘Symphonic Suite’ from ‘Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring’. Enrapture in the mystical Narnian vibes which are brought forth with the orchestra’s elegant rendition of the movie’s theme song. Enthrall in a number of magnificently executed pieces the likes of theme songs from ‘Mission Impossible’, ‘Gladiator’, ‘Beauty and the Beast’, a medley from Walt Disney’s ‘Lion King’ and much more.

Sway to the hauntingly beautiful tunes of ‘Gershwin in Concert’, a symphonic tribute to George and Ira Gershwin, 2 of the greatest composers in the 20th century. Take in the heavenly melodies heating up the very stage as the orchestra slips into a tribute to one of the most celebrated composers, conductors and pianists of all time: John Williams.
