Join us at our annual (Not) the Last Night of the Proms concert for an evening of flag-waving and famous tunes.

Be uplifted by Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue played by pianist Jorge Viladoms, in his Australian debut.

Imagine three sailors and their madcap adventures on 24-hours’ shore leave in New York, while listening to Bernstein’s On the Town. Embrace your inner Brit while Brisbane Chorale and Queensland Symphony Orchestra join forces to deliver Elgar’s rousing Land of Hope and Glory (Pomp and Circumstance March No.1), Parry’s Jerusalem, Wood’s Fantasy on British Sea Songs and Arne’s Rule Britannia.

Keep calm and carry on!
