SCYO Youth Orchestra with Queensland Symphony Orchestra
24 & 26 September 2018
In the first week of the September school holidays, the SCYO and Queensland Symphony Orchestra joint forces to form a string orchestra and symphonic orchestra. Students benefited from a unique opportunity to be tutored by the QSO members, and string players had the added bonus of working with renowned string educator Mark Sullivan.
The week culminated in a performance at the Caloundra Events Centre on the evening of Wed 26th with members of the QSO and SCYO playing “Finlandia” by Sibelius and “The Dargason” from St. Paul’s Suite by Holst in the ensembles side-by-side. After the students have performed, the QSO performed a program of Movie Music under the baton of Guy Noble.
SCYO expresses our thanks to the Sunshine Coast Council for supporting and making this collaboration possible.
