TSO gets country twang from the Wolfe Brothers

An unlikely collaboration between local country music stars The Wolfe Brothers and the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra will be one of the headline acts of the TSO’s 2024 concert season.

Tom and Nick Wolfe will play alongside a full orchestra, performing songs from their 10-year catalogue and some brand-new releases, at shows in Hobart and Launceston.

“We’re thrilled to be sharing the stage with the TSO in 2024,” Nick Wolfe said.

“They’re not your typical backing band but we’re super-excited by the prospect of joining forces to celebrate home-grown music-making in Tassie.”

TSO CEO Caroline Sharpen said regardless of what the orchestra performed or where it played, every performance would be a special, emotion-filled adventure.

“The 2024 season includes unique events like a concert of video game music and high- energy performances with home-grown superstars The Wolfe Brothers,” Ms Sharpen said.

“Whether it’s our full orchestra featuring an international virtuoso, intimate chamber music at Woolmers, an Obscura performance at the Odeon or a live sessions pub-style gig in Queenstown, experiencing the TSO live is joyous.

“In 2024 there’s something for the most seasoned music-lover, the whole family and anyone wanting to try something new.”

Arts Minister Madeleine Ogilvie said the diversity of events on offer in the program meant there was something for everyone to enjoy.

“Tasmanians have some fabulous events to look forward to in this year’s program,” she said.

“The exciting and diverse program is sure to see the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra continue to attract audiences from across Tasmania and Australia.”
