Queensland Conservatorium Chamber Orchestra returns to the stage for their final performance of 2014. Be treated to Mahler’s charming arrangement of Bach’s orchestral suites, Beethoven’s playful and joyous Symphony no.4 and Prokofiev’s romantic Violin Concerto no.1. As a special addition to the program the Orchestra will perform Peter Sculthorpe’s Earth Cry, in homage to the late legendary Australian composer (29 April 1929 – 8 August 2014).
Established in 2001, the Queensland Conservatorium Chamber Orchestra has been exploring the rich repertoire of the Baroque and Classical eras. The ensemble complements the Queensland Conservatorium Symphony Orchestra, which has a reputation for powerful performances. Both ensembles are directed by our resident conductor, Michael Morgan who, since arriving in Australia in 1999, has had a major impact on the development of musical life in Brisbane.
