Music and a touch of magic this year for Mother’s Day, thanks Queensland Symphony Orchestra!

April 1, 2014 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

There’s breakfast in bed, flowers, some lippy and sometimes even powertools bought by dad and dressed up as a ‘gift’ for mum…. This year, the Queensland Symphony Orchestra has made Mother’s Day super easy with the Happy Mother’s DayConcert, part of the incredibly loved Music on Sundays Program, being staged on Sunday 11 May at 11.30am in the Concert Hall at QPAC.

So give mum music and a touch of magic!!

Concert highlights include Dvořák’s nostalgic Songs My Mother Taught Me and Brisbane husband-and-wife legendsPamela Page and Max Olding performing Czerny’s Piano Concerto for Four Hands.

The Happy Mother’s Day concert is part of the QSO’s popular Music on Sundays series, hosted by one of Australia’s most versatile musical entertainers, Guy Noble.  Each concert in the Music on Sundays series involves popular, themed repertoire. Wave your flag in the celebratory event (Not) The Last Night of the Proms on 27 April, hear operatic wonders in Passion and Madness on 27 July, and listen to music from an array of international composers in World Inspiration on 19 October.

As the entertaining host of the series, Guy Noble, has built a popular following for the Music on Sundays concerts, his cheeky humour and occasional costume changes surprise and delight audiences of all ages. This comical, spontaneous element and Guy’s informed musical commentary make these concerts a great way to introduce audiences to orchestral music.  With themed music, renowned soloists, world-class musicians and an entertaining host, the QSO offers the perfect reason to get out of bed on a Sunday morning!

The 2014 Music on Sundays series opens on Sunday 9 March at 11.30am in the QPAC Concert Hall. Subscription packages and single tickets available now through qtix on 136 246.
