Music with a cause

• Mark Turner (above) and Leah Guelfi (below) will perform with the Perth Symphony Orchestra.

THE Perth Symphony Orchestra will tackle iconic soundtracks and pop songs to raise money for kids with cancer.

The special concert at Gloucester Park will feature special arrangements of songs from Frozen, The Lion King and The Greatest Showman, and by artists including Katy Perry, David Bowie and Taylor Swift.

Singers Leah Guelfi, Mark Turner and JAX will be backed by a 15-piece version of the PSO, featuring strings, drums and piano.

It won’t be a stuffy classical affair, with families encouraged to get up and dance around.

The special PSO performance is part of cancer research’s Family Night Out, which includes giant puzzles, face painting, an animal farm, bouncy castles and food trucks.

The proceeds will help about 100 Perth kids who have cancer, via the children’s leukaemia and cancer research foundation.

One in 500 Australian children under the age of 15 will develop cancer.

Family Night Out is on November 9. Tix are $45 for adults and kids are free.
