Her international influence can be seen in the diverse program and star-studded roster of leading soloists and conductors, featuring many QSO exclusives and Australian debuts, in grand celebration of the Orchestra’s 70th anniversary year.

For the first time, QSO will present an opera in concert, Bizet’s Carmen, featuring internationally acclaimed mezzo-soprano Vesselina Kasarova in her debut Australian performance. In further news, QSO’s new Chief Executive David Pratt will begin in mid September.
