Delivering on its commitment to bring quality music education and concert experiences to regional Queensland, 14 musicians from Queensland Symphony Orchestra visited Gladstone during May to perform with more than 300 local high school and primary school students in the GEM Community Concert.

This was QSO’s eighth year performing in Gladstone and the fifth Community Concert at the Gladstone Entertainment and Convention Centre. In an exciting debut, it was the first year the event has included the High School Percussion Ensemble and the Primary School Choral Ensemble, which involved students from 11 local primary schools.

Featuring in the free showcase concert at the Gladstone Entertainment and Convention Centre was the Combined Primary Schools Choral Ensemble, Gladstone String Ensemble and Combined High School Percussion Ensemble, Concert Band and Symphonic Band.

A highlight of this sold-out concert was the Orchestra’s performance of an arrangement of Ravel’s Bolero, featuring all the musicians as soloists.
