MUSIC FROM THE MOVIES

MUSIC FROM THE MOVIES on September 7, 2014 was a sell-out concert, and a huge success. Many who waited to get their tickets at the door had to turn back home, disappointed. The concert received a standing ovation from the full house audience in appreciation of the music and the musicians. The concert-goers had such superlative reviews of the concert, and so many were turned away at the gate, that the SOSL responded to the numerous requests with a repeat performance on October 5, 2014.

 
 


OUTREACH JAFFNA 2012

The Symphony Orchestra of Sri Lanka performed its first concert in Jaffna on November 17th, at the Veerasingham Hall.

The concert was organized in collaboration with the Embassy of Japan as part of the Embassy’s celebrations of the 60th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relations with Sri Lanka.
 


OUTREACH KILINOCHCHI 2011

Our trip to Kilinochchi in the North of Sri Lanka, sponsored by the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Colombo, was a most fulfilling experience for both the musicians and orchestra management. Many children came up to the musicians and asked questions (through the interpreter and directly) and conversed with the musicians.

The teachers too were very happy with the concert as they too had never seen most of the instruments before. It was a very satisfying trip, and the SOSL plans to continue to take music to the far reaches of Sri Lanka in 2012.
