Symphony for Me

Expression of interest  | Other  | 

Many people have a favourite piece of orchestral music, even if they don’t think of themselves as classical music fans. Maybe they only know one piece – something heard as a child, or known from a film, or linked with a big life event – but it’s music that occupies a special place.

Full Details

We’ll select five or six pieces and the stories that go with them. On the night, these members of the public will be our special guests. We’ll invite them onto the stage to tell their stories, then they’ll be given a special place onstage near where the conductor normally stands, to hear their favourite music played with the full force of the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Guy Noble.

This free concert has been a huge success for Brisbane Festival in previous years, with all tickets gone within 15 minutes. In 2019, for the first time, and due to overwhelming demand, it moves to Riverstage as part of our celebrations of that special venue’s 30th birthday.

So, bring your picnic blankets, leave your chairs at home, and enjoy some great music and stories under the starry sky.

DO YOU HAVE A FAVOURITE PIECE OF ORCHESTRAL MUSIC?

You’re invited to submit your favourite piece of orchestral music and the reason why it’s personally significant.  If your piece is one of those selected, you’ll be invited onto the stage to share your story with the host and the audience before your music choice is played.
