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?

This year, we will be raising funds for 139 Club, a local organisation in Fortitude Valley, a refuge and drop-in centre for the homeless and unfortunate. (Click Here to find out more about the amazing work they do). It is an important time for all of us to share our Christmas Spirit and spread the Joy with our music.

What an exciting day! This afternoon we will be holding our inaugural Chamber Music event, Spring Soiree. This promises to be an amazing concert packed with talents within the QMO. Repertoire include Beethoven's piano trio, Holst's wind quintet, and works by Ravel, Arnold, to just name a few. The star line-up includes JY Kim, Debbie Lee, and Professor Emma Duncan, the very medico-musicians who took our breath away with their Virtuosis performance this year. This is an event QMO has wanted to create for a long time, and it is great to be able to launch our first chamber concert this afternoon.
All proceeds from this concert will go to FAST (Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics). This concert is exclusively sponsored by Mater Pathology, who provides genetic testing for Angelman Syndrome. Without them, we would not have been able to contribute to our charities. Come and support our musicians and FAST.
Tickets will be on sale at the door, at $20 for general admission ($15 concession), it is fantastic value for the calibre of performance you will enjoy. The concert starts at 3pm, so come early to get a good seat. A selection of handmade treats will be provided during intermission for afternoon tea.
