A fortnight ago, the Senior Concert Band were fortunate to be involved in a workshop with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra assistant conductor, Natalia Raspopova. Whilst she was in attendance, Natalia auditioned students for positions to play with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra.
The Queensland Symphony Orchestra will be performing QSO Plays the Firebird at The Arts Centre Gold Coast on Friday 28 October 2016 and the Prodigy Project is an opportunity for advanced level, selected students to perform Mussorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain, as an honorary member of the QSO in this concert.
Two of our students were successful in attaining positions to work with the orchestra in this amazing opportunity. Congratulations to Declan Roberts (tuba) and Sam Stevenson (violin) on their successful auditions. We look forward to hearing them in concert soon.
