'Symphony in the Kimberley' will see five SSO musicians "“ Janet Webb (Principal flute), Diana Doherty (Principal oboe), Francesco Celata (Acting Principal clarinet), Matthew Wilkie (Principal bassoon) and Ben Jacks (Principal horn) "“ perform a program of classical and contemporary music beneath the sandstone domes of Cathedral Gorge.

The trip follows the Orchestra's highly successful collaboration with APT earlier this year in which an SSO string quartet delighted passengers on select departures of APT's Magnificent Europe Cruise in Budapest and Vienna to performances of classical repertoire tailored to these famous musical cities.

Sydney Symphony Orchestra Managing Director Rory Jeffes said a shared passion for excellence has helped APT and the SSO create this unique trip: "The SSO and APT are united by their belief in experiences of the highest quality," Mr Jeffes said. "The chance to hear our world-class musicians perform in the breathtaking surroundings of Cathedral Gorge in the Bungle Bungle Range is a not to be missed event for anyone passionate about music and exploring this wonderful country."

Rob Tandy, General Manager for APT's Kimberley Wilderness Adventures, said: "We're proud and delighted to be working with the SSO on an event that promises to be as unique and special as its surroundings. 'Symphony in the Kimberley' is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and we look forward to welcoming our guests to share this special occasion with us."
