Ringing in the New Year is all about your vantage point and where better than the colourful confines of the QPAC Concert Hall on this, the loveliest night of the year.

Headlining in 2016 are two of Queensland’s most internationally acclaimed artists: soprano Mirusia and baritone Jason Barry-Smith, who return by popular demand alongside another Pops audience favourite, violin virtuoso Cherin Lee. With a show reel of masterpieces from the orchestra’s rich and varied international repertoire, these stars of the stage are set to wow the crowd all the way through to 11:45 pm, allowing time for those who wish it to catch the traditional Brisbane fireworks display on the strike of 12! The early performance aims to be out for the 8:30pm fireworks.

For a few hours on New Year’s Eve, you can put aside the noise of the everyday and be filled with uplifting beautiful music. Join maestro Patrick Pickett, the Queensland Pops Orchestra and our star guests for an exceptional night of first-class entertainment.
