You are warmly invited to a special concert titled The King's Trumpeter, music for the royal court, performed by the acclaimed Queensland Baroque Orchestra, conducted by talented John Foster. The soloists will be John Foster, Sarah Meagher, who is a guest principal artist, and Joshua Cass. I have been to a couple of other Queensland Baroque concerts and enjoyed them so much, I know you won't be disappointed with this world-class music. And best of all - the profits are all donated to the Bushfire Appeal.

Your Comment
I just attended this wonderful concert. It was made even better by the profits being donated to the Aussie bushfire appeal and the charity Resound who donate instruments to musicians who have lost theirs in the fires.
