After seven years with QSO, Johannes Fritzsch placed down his baton for the final time as the Orchestra’s Chief Conductor on Saturday 29 November at an exhilarating concert featuring Mahler’s third symphony. 

The rapturous standing ovation was followed by a post-concert party, where music lovers were able to give Johannes a personal fond farewell, and a public tribute morning tea the following day.
