Queensland Symphony Orchestra


As I left QPAC the other night, it almost felt like I was floating. Swirls of Music in my head carried me to my car. Music can do that, it can take you places, force you to travel forward and drag you back to the past.

It is a universal form of expression, a beautiful way to communicate and touch a multitude of hearts. It is Art and wonderfully endless in possibilities. I was blissfully reminded of this when I was treated to a preview of Queensland Symphony Orchestra upcoming 2018 season. I gladly testify that Season 2018 will be different and unexpected, designed to capture your soul and move you towards adventure.

Music Director Alondra de la Parra has put together a rich season of music at its finest. A celebration of not only the Classical greats but an insight into the hearts and minds of the immense talent that you and I have access to right here in Brisbane. Through the season, we will get to know the musicians that make up QSO and introduced to acclaimed overseas talents.

"Queensland Symphony Orchestra is transforming into an orchestra for the 21st century - an orchestra that's relevant, that connects with all people, across all geographies, cultures, backgrounds and ages, and an orchestra that the world wants to listen to. We are excited to present Season 2018 and on behalf of every single orchestra and company member, we invite everyone to listen, and to let themselves go in the music," said Queensland Symphony Orchestra Chief Executive David Pratt
