A musical tribute to those who paid the ultimate price

The enormously popular free concert to commemorate Anzac Day will be held again this year. Due to the overwhelming popularity of Brisbane's ANZAC Eve Concert has prompted organisers to cater for a much bigger audience this year.

Join the Queensland Symphony Orchestra for this free event which will be staged at The Courier-Mail Piazza and, for the first time, streamed live to a big screen outdoors at South Bank Parklands.

The concert will be presented by Queensland Symphony Orchestra (QSO) and RSL (Queensland Branch).

This moving public tribute to the tens of thousands of Australians who have died in military service is the perfect way to begin your Anzac Day celebrations. Listen to the wonderful sounds of the Queensland Symphony Orchestra amongst the flowers, lights and beautiful surrounds of Southbank Parklands.

Conductor Tecwyn Evans will lead the orchestra through a stirring and inspiring program including A Mass for Peace by Karl Jenkins and Fauré's Requiem.

Also on the bill are:

Brisbane Police Pipes and Drums
Queensland Detachment of the Royal Australian Navy Band
Queensland Choir
Brisbane Concert Choir St Andrew's.

Bring your cushions, blankets and picnic hamper and relax listening to the wonderful music in memory of those we loved and who paid the ultimate price.

The concert starts at 6.30pm, finishing at 8pm.

As this is a free, General Admission event, audience members are encouraged to arrive early to secure a seat at the Piazza. Chairs are not permitted in the adjacent Rainforest Green but picnic blankets are encouraged.
