On Monday 16 March, the players of The Queensland Wind Orchestra discussed our approach to our upcoming concert PLAY!, to be held on 4 April at The Old Museum, in light of the current health crisis.
The players voted to postpone PLAY! to the first concert of 2021.
So, instead of holding our concert at The Old Museum building, we’ll be hosting an online-only event at the same time, on the same evening: Favourites.
Presented by David Law, this event will highlight some of our stand-out performances, and will be your first opportunity to re-listen to these performances outside of the concert hall, all of which were recorded thanks to our long-standing partnership with SAE Institute Australia – giving students real-life experiences in orchestral recording.
Our stream will be held on our YouTube channel here. Make sure you put this event in your diaries, share with your friends and family, and join us online as we re-listen to an hour of outstanding works performed by the Queensland Wind Orchestra.
If you’d like to read more about how this decision was made from the perspective of one of our Tuba players, James Harvey has written a fantastic blog post describing it here.
Take care, and we hope to see you online.
