This performance by the Brass and Percussion students of Queensland Conservatorium concludes the Brisbane Contemporary Church Music Festival.
Hear the stunning sound of these talented professional musicians in training as they explore the sacred spaces usually inhabited by choirs and organs. The concert includes premiere performances written especially with the St John’s acoustic in mind, including new works by Robert Davidson, Andrew Ford and Nicole Murphy.
The Brisbane Contemporary Church Music Festival runs from 3 – 17 August. It presents recent sacred music that remains largely hidden to modern audiences because of the high standard of performance it requires.
