Water – sometimes peaceful, sometimes turbulent, always captivating.
You will experience all of this as Queensland Symphony Orchestra transports you into the world of water – a small trickle that transforms into a flowing river, a royal barge gliding down the Thames, the frozen expanses of Antarctica, and of course, the one and only Beautiful Blue Danube.
Join us for a memorable concert as our musicians conjure up all these images and more.
“What always compels me about Queensland Symphony Orchestra is the sheer physicality of the players: countless bow arcing, they honeyed cry of French horns and the and the answering staccato of flutes. Besides a technical prowess, it highlights a passion for the music – and for sharing it.” – West End Magazine
