Mayor Jamieson - Looking forward to the mayoral performance
  • Wednesday 23 May 2018

A new event is coming for our Sunshine Coast – and this one will be a music lovers’ delight that I'm already looking forward to attending.

On September 26 at our region’s premier performing arts venue - The Events Centre, Caloundra - the Queensland Symphony Orchestra will play a special Mayoral Performance featuring the Best of Movie Music.

And as a bonus for our region's young musicians, a specially formed Mayoral Invitational Youth Orchestra will have the chance to show off their musical talents in front of the audience.

I’m delighted to welcome the QSO back to the Sunshine Coast for this collaborative performance.

The QSO last performed at The Events Centre in December 2016 to a sold-out audience and I know there will be many people keen to get their tickets for this performance.

The Sunshine Coast has a strong and vibrant music scene and this is certainly a great opportunity for our local secondary students to learn from and play alongside the outstanding musicians in the QSO.

I encourage all our young musicians to see their music teachers if they are interested in taking part.
