Matthew Flinders Anglican College will proudly present the Queensland Symphony Orchestra’s Hymn to Mother Earth concert in the Flinders Performance Centre, Buderim from 7:30pm.
Like nature itself, this concert is designed “to soothe you, fill you with awe and refresh your soul”.
For one night only, be the first to witness this masterful concert prior to its Brisbane debut in the Concert Hall, QPAC.
In this concert, the Queensland Symphony Orchestra’s Principal Conductor Johannes Fritzsch brings Mother Earth to life with a span of music from across the globe and across history that has taken its inspiration from the natural world.
German-born Johannes Fritzsch has conducted many leading orchestras across the globe and conducts the major Australasian orchestras as well as leading productions for Opera Australia, Opera Queensland, West Australian Opera and State Opera of South Australia.
Flinders is honoured to be hosting the Queensland Symphony Orchestra in its Flinders Performance Centre, a state-of-the-art professional venue with strong acoustics.
What’s more, Flinders students will also have the opportunity to audition to be mentored by the Queensland Symphony Orchestra musicians.
Eight students will be selected to perform with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra for the final musical piece of the concert.
It’s all part of the Queensland Symphony Orchestra’s commitment to playing alongside young musicians and seeking to inspire their creativity and ambition.
About the Hymn to Mother Earth Concert Program
As long as composers have been writing music, the natural world has been an inspiration.
And like nature itself, this concert will soothe you, fill you with awe and refresh your soul.
The program presents magical musical depictions of nature, including Australian composer Peter Sculthorpe’s evocative work ‘From Uluru’, depicting the heartland of the Australian outback.
Also on the program is Smetana's ever-popular ‘The Moldau’, following the course of a river from a tiny stream (the flute) through to its majestic outpouring into the ocean.
Among Conductor Johannes Fritzsch’ many career achievements, in 2017 the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra invited him to design and lead the newly founded Australian Conducting Academy.
