GPC Marina Stage, Gladstone

Symphony Under the Stars 2020 - Gladstone

Where would all the great movies be without their great music?

Conductor Dane Lam and Host Jason Barry-Smith call “action!” as Queensland Symphony Orchestra perform spine-tingling themes that have moved audiences for decades. 

From original movie scores to classical music featured in inspiring movies, it’s a feast of favourites – the triumphant themes from Star Wars; the exhilaration of the flying bikes in E.T’s ‘Adventures on Earth’; and, arranged especially for Queensland Symphony Orchestra, the stirring landscape of works from Belle by the first ever female composer to win an Academy Award, Rachel Portman; and much, much more. This will be guaranteed fun for all the family!

This event is free, but bookings are essential.
