The Brisbane Philharmonic Orchestra (BPO) is proudly presenting a series of special concert events this August featuring two acclaimed and accomplished young Australian soloists - harpist Emily Granger and flutist Jonathan Henderson.

  • Pomona | Majestic Theatre | Friday 19 August 7pm

  • Maryborough | Maryborough City Hall | Saturday 20 August 6pm

  • Brisbane | Holy Trinity Parish Hall | Friday 26 August 7pm

  • Warwick | Warwick Town Hall | Saturday 27 August 2pm

  • Toowoomba | St Luke's Parish Hall | Sunday 28 August 3pm

    Accompanied by several members of the Brisbane Philharmonic Orchestra, Emily and Jonathan will perform spectacular renditions of works by Mozart, Vaughan-Williams, Faure, Schoenberg, and more.

    At the heart of the concert is BPO's stunning new Lyon and Healy Salzedo concert harp, acquired specifically for this concert series with the generous assistance of the Australian Government's Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand (RISE) Fund.

    Created in the Art Deco style characteristic of the 1920s, the Salzedo model concert harp is marked by precise linear carving and austere geometric decoration in the hard maple column and base.

    The harp was handmade in the factories of world-renowned Lyon & Healy (Chicago USA), whose harps are found in concert halls round the world, from the New York Philharmonic to the Bolshoi Ballet, and are acclaimed for their remarkable depth and clarity of sound, breathtaking designs, and rich heritage of quality craftsmanship.

    Emily Granger notes the event celebrates the versatility of the harp in both classic and modern settings."As a harpist and performer I'm incredibly passionate about promoting the instrument to audiences to showcase its capabilities. People often associate the harp as an 'angelic' and 'beautiful' instrument, which it is, but it's also an incredibly diverse instrument and our program really demonstrates this! It's wonderful to be taking the instrument out 'on the road' into more regional areas so people can hear and see the harp up close and personal".

    The performances will conclude with complimentary wine and refreshments and a chance to speak to the artists and see the harp up close.
