Make an occasion of it - dress up & bling up

The countdown is on and the Queensland Pops Orchestra is once again presenting an exhilarating and entertaining musical journey to usher in 2018 at their annual New Year's Eve Gala concert.

This is your best "A-list" New Year's Eve event! It will be a most glamourous, fun-filled night to remember with a fine evening of entertainment in the colourful confines of the QPAC Concert Hall.

Headlining this year's event is internationally renowned tenor Rosario La Spina, soprano Katie Stenzel, and young violin virtuoso Cherin Lee, along with the full Pops Orchestra. As a special treat, dancers from Queensland Ballet, Dylan Lackey and Talia Fidra will join in the festivities and Pipe Major Roddy MacDonald will perform on the rooftop at midnight.

With a showreel of masterpieces from the orchestra's rich and varied international repertoire, these stars of the stage are set to wow the crowd all the way through to 11:45 pm, allowing time for those who wish it to catch the traditional Brisbane fireworks display on the strike of 12! The early performance aims to be out for the 8:30pm fireworks.

For a few hours on New Year's Eve, you can put aside the noise of the every day and be filled with uplifting beautiful music. Join maestro Patrick Pickett, the Queensland Pops Orchestra and special guests for an exceptional night of first-class entertainment.
