Seventeen-Year Old Perth violin sensation set to dazzle audiences

WAYO’s very own string sensation Emmalena Huning has achieved many accolades for her performances
over the years. Her outstanding ability has won her many prizes and awards, including the WA
Concerto Open at Fremantle Eisteddfod and Most Outstanding Performers’ Award at North of
Perth Music Festival in 2016. A 2017 finalist in the prestigious National Youth Concerto
Competition in Queensland, award winner of the Best Performance of Australian Composition Prize at
the Kendall National Violin Competition and prizewinner in the Open Concerto category at the Osaka
International Music Competition, Emmalena continues to impress with a bright future ahead.

Emmalena will join the WA Youth Orchestra to perform Korngold’s Hollywood film-style
Violin Concerto in D and unveil its 2018 Perth Concert Hall season with Journeys – a musical
journey of orchestral masterpieces, beginning with Ravel’s hypnotic and explosive Boléro – one of the most recognised works of all time and concluding with Mussorgsky’s masterpiece, Pictures at an Exhibition – a vivid musical picture brought to life in
Maurice Ravel’s colourful and famous orchestration.

The WA Youth Orchestra (WAYO) has a rich performance history, formed over a period of over forty
years of music-making. The orchestra showcases the talents of Perth and Western Australias young
orchestral musicians aged 12 – 24 years old and has a deserved reputation as one of the finest
youth orchestras in Australia. WAYO presents a large number of main stage concerts a year at
Perth’s premier concert venues, and performs to annual audiences of over 40,000 a year.

The WA Youth Orchestra is supported by its Principal Partner, Woodside.
