A concert that evokes the Christmas Spirit
QPAC's popular Christmas concert returns this year – now in its 31st year, the Spirit of Christmas continues to inspire audiences through stunning music, stirring solos, audience sing-alongs and an inspirational message reflecting the true meaning of Christmas.
This has become a signature event at QPAC. Tickets are selling fast for the three performances held on Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th December.
Musical group performing in the foyer
Led by two of Australia's leading musical theatre performers, the Spirit of Christmas features the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, conducted by the talented Simon Kenway, and the 250 strong voices of the Spirit of Christmas Choir. The voices from the QPAC Choir, Brisbane Chorale, Resonance of Birralee and the Brisbane Birralee Voices Children's Choir join together to fill the QPAC Concert Hall with energy and enthusiasm.
The superb selection of songs combines musical overtures, traditional carols and new songs. Previous concerts have included a number from Elf the Musical and Frozen's, Do You Want to Build a Snow Man?
