A UNIQUE mu­sic ex­pe­ri­ence in the heart of Townsville re­turns to the city as part of the Aus­tralian Fes­ti­val of Cham­ber Mu­sic.

The free con­cert in Queens Gar­dens on July 30 will show­case an ar­ray of mu­sic, with the 1RAR band and the Bar­rier Reef Orches­tra per­form­ing, along­side fes­ti­val artists.

Aus­tralian Fes­ti­val of Cham­ber Mu­sic ex­ec­u­tive director Justin Ankus said the 90- minute gar­den con­cert was a pop­u­lar event on the AFCM calendar.

“The Queens Gar­dens Con­cert has be­come a hugely pop­u­lar event for lo­cals and vis­i­tors alike, so we have worked with Townsville City Coun­cil to en­sure its re­turn again this year,” Mr Ankus said.

“There will be a great range of mu­sic in­clud­ing Ch­eryl Barker and Peter Cole­manWright per­form­ing arias from the op­eras Carmen and Tosca, and we will, of course, in­clude the re­turn of the ex­plo­sive Over­ture. It will be a de­light­ful af­ter­noon.”

Townsville Mayor Jenny Hill said the con­cert had be­come a so­cial and arts high­light.
