IN a world-first, the Queensland Government’s Super Star fund will bring renowned physicist Brian Cox to Brisbane to lead a Journey Through
the Cosmos with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra. Journey Through the Cosmos melds music, voice, science and film in an unforgettable multi-sensory experience from at Queensland Performing Arts Centre from November 6-9 next year. Cox is an international rock star particle physicist and host of the global smash-hit series
Wonders of the Universe. The world premiere production features a full orchestral and choral performance of Holst’s The Planets’ Suite with cosmic image projections created by Cox as the backdrop. Arts minister Ian Walker says Journey
Through the Cosmos includes a live simulcast to regional venues throughout Queensland, with lectures, a recital and a dedicated schools program as part of the Super Star initiative, which commits $3 million over four years to bring international artists to Queensland to cultivate local talent.
