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.

A Star-Studded Concert!

Posted on 6 April 2016

QMO is very excited to welcome a celebrity guest conductor for the Best of British: Nigel Gaynor is currently the music director/conductor for Queensland Ballet and is internationally renowned for his work with various ballet companies around the world. He has spent the last decade working in the UK, and has very generously shared his spare time to work with our orchestra in between a very busy season of QB's 'Midsummer Night's Dream'.

We had our first rehearsal with Nigel last Sunday, it was clear that the rehearsal was a pleasurable experience for all as the whole orchestra was in awe of their celebrity conductor. Our members were full of enthusiasm and passion, even if the first few notes were wobbly; these were transformed into magnificent music within two hours under his tutelage. All of us feel privileged to work with someone of his calibre and hope our audience on Sunday 17th April will be in awe of the sound that he has inspired us to produce.

Nigel and Ryan, with the orchestra have worked hard to bring you a fantastic program of music from the British Isles, including some magnificent Operatic works, such as Rule Brittania and Dido's Lament. These will be sung by Tanya Cooling, yet another world-renowned celebrity, a New Zealand Soprano who has worked extensively in Europe, including the English National Opera. It is a rare opportunity for QMO to work with a professional with such mesmerising voice and we can't wait for you to hear it in The Old Museum. 

Don't forget to buy your tickets now, as we are sure it will be a sell-out!

Date: Sunday April 17th

Time: 2pm

Venue: The Old Museum, Bowen Hills

Tickets: General Admission $30/ Concession $25
