'Care to Dance?' to support Palliative Care

Posted on 1 March 2017

Our upcoming 'Care to Dance?' concert on Sunday 9th April at the Brisbane City Hall will be performed in support of Palliative Care. Proceeds from our concert will be going to Karuna, a charity that provides palliative care for terminally ill patients and essential support to their families so that they can spend as much time together at home as possible. Karuna provides crucial services and phenomenal support for these patients and their families during a very difficult period of their lives. QMO recently lost one of our members to cancer in 2016 and we are very proud to support such an important charity, who have not only looked after one of our own, but thousands of cancer sufferers around Queensland. 'Care to Dance?' is a befitting event to raise awareness of this essential aspect of cancer treatment.

Posted on 30 December 2016

Our 2017 Season will showcase some exciting productions, including a collaborative event in April with Queensland Ballet and their academy dancers, as well as their music director, Nigel Gaynor. Maestro Gaynor was our guest conductor in the 'Best of British' concert in 2016, which raised over $5000 for Prince Charles Hospital Foundation in heart disease research. He will again take us through some spectacular music from well-known ballets, in conjunction with live dancers from Queensland Ballet Academy performers. The concert will be all about music associated with dance, with guest artists in tap dancing, Flamenco, and much more. This is going to be a spectacular show that is sure to entertain our fans of all ages. 'Care to Dance' will raise funds for Palliative Care, an integral part of cancer care. Do you care enough to 'dance' with us?
