Festival Concert


Derwent Symphony Orchestra at the Town Hall


The Hobart Town Hall is celebrating its 150th birthday this year as we are celebrating 100 years since the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration.

The concert by the Derwent Symphony Orchestra is on Thursday 8 September at 7:00 pm in the Hobart Town Hall.

Hear one of our finest Tasmanian orchestras with chorus and the magnificent Town Hall organ play a full program of music that was popular in 1912, when Douglas Mawson and his party opened Australia’s first Antarctic station at Commonwealth Bay.

Mawson's Huts Foundation 1

Enjoy music by Dvorak, Spilman and Arthur Sullivan, along with popular songs from the era. It’s fun and light-hearted and there might even be some singing along!
