QMF Artistic Director Katie Noonan said week three is packed with diverse and vibrant performances and master classes.
“From intimate encounters with Lior and string quartet at the Old Museum and artists including Robbie Miller at The Johnson in Brisbane, to large-scale opera productions in an outdoor amphitheatre in the Western Downs, this third week of Queensland Music Festival has plenty on offer to delight all Queenslanders,” said Noonan.
Celebrated singer-songwriter Lior will perform an intimate show at Brisbane’s Old Museum on Saturday, 22 July. Bursting onto the Australian music scene in 2005 with his ARIA-nominated debut album, Autumn Flow, Lior is renowned for his beautiful voice and fantastic compositions.
“Lior’s lilting melodies and gorgeous voice will soar in the Old Museum’s heritage-listed performance space for another intimate Queensland Music Festival concert,” said Noonan.
Providing both a close and personal experience, these intimate concerts are limited to just 20 audience members per event.
Also on Sunday, virtuoso organist David Gray will play on a 1934-vintage cinema pipe organ, known as ‘The Christie’. The program will include classic and popular music from movies and Broadway at Kelvin Grove State College.
Continuing their Bach to Bush tour of South West Queensland, percussionist John Morrison and virtuoso cellist Louise King, will bring joint performances workshops and masterclasses to Charleville Town Hall on Wednesday, 19 July, Barcaldine Town Hall on Thursday, 20 July, Longreach’s Qantas Founders Museum on Friday, 21 July and Warwick CBD Palmerin Street on Sunday, 23 July.
QMF’s On Song program will welcome six young musicians from Longreach, Townsville, Cairns and Charters Towers to the stage alongside singer-songwriter Jack Carty.
Music groups from Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University will visit aged care centres across South-East Queensland.
To conclude a fantastic week of events, UQ’s School of Music’s the Southern Cross Soloists will take audiences on a musical Journey Along the Silk Road.
