The Queensland Music Festival 2015 is set to showcase an array of global stars of phenomenal talent.
The biennial festival will boast the musicianship of performers such as James Morrison, renowned Finnish composer Max Savikangas, Grammy award-winner Edgar Meyer and many more.
Ten world premieres and hundreds of workshops and performances will take place throughout Queensland, in 26 cities and towns.
In light of the 100th anniversary of ANZAC Day, three free of charge concerts are scheduled in dedication of the Queenslander’s who fought in war.
These concerts will feature the Australian Defence Force Bands and the Australian debut of Germany’s Saxon Wind Philharmonic.
The Queensland Symphony Orchestra will also be a guest performer in this year’s Queensland Music Festival.
Community participation is an exciting new feature of 2015’s Queensland Music Festival, as pianos will be available across 40 locations in Brisbane encouraging people to play and entertain to take part in the festival.
Other performers that will be showcased this year include India’s acclaimed musicians – veena player Jayanthi Kumaresh and classical singer Pandit Kaivalykumar.
