East Meets West Orchestral Concert
East Meets West Orchestral Concert is a rare opportunity for audiences to hear traditional and contemporary music from the east and the west, including two immensely acclaimed Chinese classics rarely performed live on Australian stages, Butterfly Lovers Violin Concerto and Yellow River Piano Concerto.
For the Brisbane performance at QPAC on Wednesday, March 2 at 7: 30pm, Queensland Symphony Orchestra will collaborate with the East Meets West artists conducted by Dane Lam, Opera Queensland’s resident conductor. “QSO is delighted to be involved in this important concert that celebrates China’s rich cultural and musical heritage, and some of the great artists of Chinese heritage that now call Australia home,” said QSO Chief Executive Craig Whitehead.
NSW guest artists include award winning pianist Tony Lee, violinist Sun Yi, Sydney Symphony Orchestra’s Associate Concertmaster, leading guzheng player Angie Liu, multi award winning Opera Australia soprano Sharon Zhai and one of Australia’s brightest young mezzo sopranos Victoria Lambourn, Brisbane-born who lives in Victoria.
