CLASSICAL music lovers won't want to miss the Sydney Youth Orchestra at Parramatta Riverside Theatres.
Oatlands local Nicholas Walmsley will be a star of the show.
The violinist has been playing for almost 10 years, building his skills to earn spots in prestigious orchestras.
For the past five years he has been with the Sydney Youth Orchestra.
"I started in one of the smaller orchestras and have worked my way up," he said.
Conducted by Max McBride, the orchestra will play Sergei Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet Suite No. 2, Sergei Rachmaninov's Symphonic Dances and Jindrich Feld's Concerto for Flute and String Orchestra, Piano, Harp and Percussion.
When Prokofiev completed his Romeo and Juliet Suite No. 2 in 1935, it was claimed to be "undanceable".
Rachmananinov's three movement orchestral suite was completed five years after Prokofiev's.
The work was characterised by its focus on individual tones, particularly the alto saxaphone in the opening dance.
The pieces are technically challenging but Walmsley said the Sydney Youth Orchestra quickly brought them to life.
"We only have about two months to rehearse."
The talented violinist has received two diplomas from Trinity College, London.
The 19-year-old said he was not sure where his career would lead him next after having achieved many goals already.
But he was confident that music lovers would enjoy the Riverside Theatres Parramatta performance.
"They will certainly see a wonderful program.
"People will genuinely appreciate the program and great music."
