This Mother's Day, the Adelaide University Medical Orchestra invites you, your mother, grandmother and everyone else to its 9th Annual Charity Concert - Transforming AUMO!
Featuring a hundred medical students in our student-run Orchestra, Big Band, Vocal Ensemble, Hip Hop and Lyrical Dance Crews, Transforming AUMO will also be the debut of two new ensembles! A unique array of classical and modern pieces teamed with refreshing arrangements and compositions, Transforming AUMO promises to impress yet again!
Come along for an evening of inspiration, entertainment and groovin' in your seats!
A Sneak Peek:
The Orchestra's repertoire includes pieces from Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty, Beethoven's Egmont Overture and de Falla's Ritual Fire Dance. This year, Big Band (née Stage Band) will feature Shofukan, Joy of Cookin', an arrangement of The Beatles' Blackbird and more. Vocal Ensemble is bringing Walking on Air and an ABBA Medley to the stage. The Lyrical and Hip-Hop Crews will return, joined by the new Jazz Dance group!
This year, all proceeds from concert tickets, raffles, bake sales and sponsors will be donated to a collaborative project between the Migrant Health Service and STTARS (Survivors of Torture and Trauma Assistance and Rehabilitation Service). They will be organising a therapeutic social and cooking group for newly arrived refugee women. Groups such as this one have been shown to promote recovery and resilience in people who have suffered trauma.
Physical tickets (and baked goods!) will be available at the AHMS foyer a couple weeks before the concert. Tickets purchased online can be collected at Front of House on the night, organised under the name of the ticket buyer.
NB: There will be limited (if any) tickets available at the door.
