52 Strings

Local players will be invited to play in a rare live performance of Penderecki’s 1960 Threnody to the Victims of Hiroshima. This evocative work brings to life the terrifying sounds of war.

The full orchestra will also tackle one of the most glorious and well-loved works of the string orchestra, Vaughan-Williams’s Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis.

Camerata- Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra completes the program with music from its Helpmann Award nominated concert, Home.

52 Strings pairs two astonishing works that bring together Camerata – Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra, with talented string students and educators from the Gold Coast to create a mass ensemble of 52 strings.

★★★★½ ‘A beautifully presented programme radiating professionalism and polish.’ – Suzannah Conway, Limelight Magazine

‘The simply splendid Camerata has gained an impressive record of artistic achievement by being flexible in its repertoire, reinterpreting the classics while embracing the new.’ – Carolyn McDowall, The Culture Concept

‘Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra demonstrates not only exceptional high quality orchestral playing by a core group of talented musicians, but they also take risks with alternative programming that is clearly attracting an enthusiastic following.’ – Suzannah Conway, ArtsHub

 ‘…as an ensemble they are stylish, highly communicative and blessed with a sense of real enjoyment in their music making.’ – Clive Paget, Limelight Magazine

‘Watch this space. This ensemble is going places.’ – Martin Buzacott, The Australian
