Orchestral music on Tamborine
THE Tamborine Mountain Orchestra and Tamborine Mountain High School will showcase what they’ve learnt from the Queensland Symphony Orchestra (QSO) during performances in May.
The students and budding musicians were mentored by the state’s prestigious orchestra thanks to a grant from Regional Arts Development Fund and support from Sunshine Coast Youth Orchestra.
On May 22, the Tamborine Mountain concert at the local high school auditorium will see the Tamborine Mountain Orchestra play suites from Pirates of the Caribbean, Tetris and The Hunger Games.
They’ll also play works by Beethoven, Bizet and selections from Grieg’s Peer Gynt suite with the QSO Ensemble, conducted by Rob McWilliams.
The QSO Ensemble will perform Kats-Chernin’s Russian Rag, Gershwin Prelude No.1, Saint Saens Danse Bacchanale and Brahms Hungarian Dance No.5.
The event starts at 2.30pm and tickets are $5, available at qso.com.au
