Camerata – Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra presents a program of beloved and joyous classical music alongside a new Australian work in a performance that the whole family will enjoy!
Classical Reimagined will feature timeless classical masterpieces by Mozart and Tchaikovsky in stunning new interpretations, along with a brand-new composition by Camerata’s Emerging Composer-in-Residence, Alexander Voltz.
Inspired by his recent trip exploring the Emerald region, Voltz’s piece will conjure evocative soundscapes in an exciting new work for string orchestra. Camerata is delighted to premiere the work in regional Queensland, following a long tradition of local audiences loving new music commissioned by Camerata, previously based on the Fraser Coast, Winton and Paronella Park in Far North Queensland.
Performing without a conductor, the two-time Helpmann Award nominated ensemble has established itself as a chamber orchestra of national significance. Known for their innovative and adventurous programming, Camerata thrives on collaborations with artists across a range of artforms and delights in working and performing with local musicians of any age and experience.
Classical Reimagined will be a joyful and lively concert experience, not to be missed.
