What's On: The Queensland Symphony Orchestra

"What always compels me about Queensland Symphony Orchestra is the sheer physicality of the players: countless bows arcing down upon strings in tandem, air quivering from the honeyed cry of French horns and the answering staccato of flutes. Besides a technical prowess, it highlights a passion for the music - and for sharing it." (West End Magazine, Feb 2018)

Queensland Symphony Orchestra presents a diverse program for Winter, performing the following spectacular programs at QPAC Concert Hall:
