Queensland Symphony Orchestra 75th Birthday Concert
For 75 years Queensland Symphony Orchestra has shared the power and joy of music with Queenslanders from Townsville to Toowoomba and the Tweed, Gladstone to the Gold Coast, and Cairns to Cunnamulla.
The concert will celebrate the history and the future of Queensland’s state orchestra, and will feature guest artists, interviews with musicians and historical imagery. A major highlight will be the wide range of music showcasing the orchestra’s famed signature style of playing, from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake finale to Australian composer Sean O’Boyle’s Concerto for Didgeridoo performed by acclaimed First Nations didgeridoo player Chris Williams, as well as a performance by QSO’s 2022 Young Instrumentalist prize winner Chantel Chen, all under the baton of conductor Guy Noble.
In a fitting finale, Principal Conductor and Artistic Adviser Johannes Fritzsch will conduct Respighi’s mighty Pines of Rome; one of the greatest orchestral showpieces ever created.
