Regional firm brings symphony to the sticks
Cappello Rowe, a small firm operating both in Sydney and regional New South Wales, has sponsored the Sydney Symphony’s trek to Griffith as part of the symphony’s annual regional tour.

The firm, which has an office in Griffith, aims to sponsor a community event in in the town each year. This year, in conjunction with firm, the town’s only theatre put on a sell-out show for residents. 

Sarah Cappello, founding partner, said that entertainment options in the town are largely limited to sporting events.

“Everyone who went said it was amazing and for some people, it was the first time they had been to something like that,” she said.  “It actually was a sold out show so I think the community really got on board with the event.”

The symphony ran a workshop for local kids the day following the performance, even playing a children’s song they composed and meeting with the local community.

“We got to mingle with the orchestra for the event. It was really interesting to meet them and see the different personalities behind the performance ,” said Capello.  “They were so lovely; it kind of just made the performance more enjoyable after you got to know the people.”
