On Friday 10 and Saturday 11 May, Johannes Fritzsch, Queensland Symphony Orchestra’s Conductor Laureate will conduct Bruckner’s ravishing seventh symphony, a spiritual odyssey of dark cosmic power rich in melodic beauty.

In Queensland Symphony Orchestra’s Kings and Queens concert on Sunday 19 May, audiences will lose themselves in the opulent and triumphant world of royalty, with a feast of processions, waltzes and marches, including the ever-popular Entrance of the Queen of Sheba by Handel.
