Sing with QSO is a program for anyone who loves to sing in a choir and wants to experience the power of a full symphony orchestra. Participants will rehearse in QSO’s South Bank Studio before being joined by Queensland Symphony Orchestra to sing through Faure’s Requiem.
Participants in Sing with QSO will:
• Sing with Queensland’s largest performing arts company and only professional symphony orchestra;
• Work with choral conductor Gordon Hamilton and superb soloists;
• Engage in a weekday evening rehearsal and a Saturday afternoon of music making;
• Meet other community musicians from across South East Queensland; and
• Sing favourite classical repertoire in QSO’s Studio venue.
This opportunity is for adults (18 years and older) who love to sing regardless of ability or experience.
