Experience a program that offers hope in times of uncertainty, storm and stress; two darkly compelling masterpieces from Soviet-era Russia set alongside Beethoven's evergreen 7th Symphony.
The UQ Symphony Orchestra conducted by Fabian Russell will be joined by the Queensland Wind Orchestra and a number of Brisbane high schools for Stravinsky's monumental and awe-inspiring Symphony of Psalms. Soloist Anna Grinberg will then perform Shostakovich's madcap and bleakly humorous Piano Concerto in C Minor. Finally, the enduring light of Beethoven offers a ray of hope as vitally important now as it was over 200 years ago, as musicians from the Queensland Symphony Orchestra join UQ students for Beethoven's beloved 7th Symphony.
Proudly presented by The University of Queensland’s School of Music in association with Queensland Symphony Orchestra, Queensland Wind Orchestra, Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Mt St Michael's College, Ambrose Treacy College, St Laurence’s College and Clayfield College, as part of the UQ Vice-Chancellor’s Concert Series.
