Event Details

Mount Isa Celebrates brings together a star-studded line-up of performing artists, with an impressive array of instrumental and vocal talent born and bred in the city.

Mount Isa Community Ensembles (MICE) has inspired the creation of one of the world’s most remote symphony orchestras. In their debut performance, the orchestra will share the stage with more than 300 musicians, including the Mount Isa Community Chorus and Combined Schools Choir.

Headlining both performances will be jazz star James Morrison, stunning vocalist Emma Pask, internationally renowned concert pianist Ambre Hammond, violin virtuoso Ian Cooper, and the John Morrison Trio.

The grand finale will be a world premiere performance of Symphony of the Inland Sea by acclaimed Australian composer, Matthew Dewey. This evocative work is inspired by the extraordinary landscape in and around this iconic city.

This is a free event but bookings are strongly recommended.
