Season Closing Gala

Season Closing Gala

A Musical Celebration

Concert Hall, QPAC

Unfortunately, due to ongoing international COVID-19 uncertainties, we are unable to present the planned Four Last Songs concert. Whist conductor Ludovic Morlot and soprano Emma Pearson are no longer able to bring Richard Strauss’ incredible work to the stage, we are delighted to present this adjusted Season Closing Gala concert.

#In our final concert for the 2021 season, conductor Umberto Clerici will lead the Orchestra in a concert that spans three composers, countries, and styles.

First, a trip to the Italian opera hall for The Thieving Magpie Overture by Rossini, made famous in the film A Clockwork Orange, and a great curtain raiser in every sense of the word. Also on the opera theme, we have assembled a massive orchestra to perform the orchestral suite from Richard Strauss’ legendary opera Der Rosenkavalier (The Knight of the Rose). Finally, our concert showcases the originally planed La mer (The Sea), one of Debussy’s great masterpieces - an invocation so strong, you can almost smell the salt and hear the waves.

With Maestro Clerici at the podium and one of the biggest assembly of musicians on stage this year, this will go down as an exhilarating night music-making at the highest level.
