QLD Pops – 30th Anniversary Concert: The POPS Greatest Hits

2014 marks the launch of the 30th anniversary season of the Queensland Pops Orchestra .



On 17 May 2014 the Pops will present the 30th Anniversary Concert , conducted by Patrick Pickett and featuring internationally renowned singer Mirusia Louwerse and the Pops "Pin Up Boy" Gregory Moore.

Queensland born Mirusia has risen to international stardom through her performances with Andre Rieu who refers to her as "The Angel of Australia". Mirusia continues to enjoy amazing success with Andre's concert tours around the world and also with her own concert tours across Europe and Australia.

Gregory Moore had some of his earliest stage performances with the Queensland Pops Orchestra. He became the face of the Pops "Scotland the Brave" series and has remained one of the Pops more requested artists. Gregory will be performing those songs which have made him a favourite over the years.

This concert will feature some of the most popular pieces ever played by the Pops. The Friends of the Pops have been asked to vote for their favourite pieces of music. Patrick will have the unenviable task of refining the programme to include those pieces most requested.

Also performing at this concert on 17th May will be rising young pianist Chai Jie. The 16year old currently attends St. Aidan's Anglican Girls' School, Corinda. Chai Jie will make her concert debut with the full orchestra performing Rachmaninov Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.

This program will also feature some of the many hundreds of musicians who have played with the Pops over the last 30 years. Long serving Concertmaster Julie-Anne O'Reilly will perform a violin solo.

The finale of this 30th Anniversary Concert is sure to be one of the most spectacular ever. The celebrations will be triumphant, not only designed to celebrate the last 30 years but will provide a real launching pad for the next phase of the Orchestra's history.

There are two performances only on Saturday 17 May 2014 of this special 30th Anniversary Concert – Matinee at 2.30p.m. and Evening Performance at 8.00p.m.

Tickets are on sale now through QPAC and range from $78 to $85, with concession rates and group discounts available. To proceed with a booking, please visit the QPAC website or contact 136246.
