QUEENSLAND’S Chamber Orchestra is bringing Camerata in Concert to the Proserpine Entertainment Centre, showcasing an unforgettable evening of classical music in their one-night-only concert, on May 31.
Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra was founded in 1987 by admired string educator Elizabeth Morgan AM.
Ms Morgan wished to create an ensemble of emerging artists, which she then formed into a professional chamber orchestra, in 2005.
Camerata will deliver a remarkable evening of beloved and joyous classical music with a performance that the whole family can enjoy.
Camerata in Concert will feature exquisite music by Dvorak, Vivaldi and more, along with a brand-new composition by Camerata’s 2023 Emerging Composer-in-Residence, Ray Lin.
Camerata is delighted to premiere Mr Lin’s piece in regional Queensland, following a long tradition of local audiences loving new music commissioned by Camerata, previously based on the Fraser Coast, Emerald, Winton in Western Queensland.
This year, Mr Lin’s work is inspired by his recent trip exploring the Whitsunday region and will conjure evocative soundscapes in an exciting new work for string orchestra.
Performing without a conductor, the two-time Helpmann Award nominated ensemble has established itself as a chamber orchestra of national significance.
Known for their innovative and adventurous programming, Camerata thrives on collaborations with artists across a range of artforms and delights in working and performing with local musicians of any age and experience.
This tour is made possible with the support of the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
The show will run for 90 minutes at the Proserpine Entertainment Centre, 14 Main Street Proserpine from 6.30pm until 8pm.
Musicians wishing to be considered for an audition or invitation to play with Camerata can express interest to do so, at any time.
Camerata also welcomes immediate graduates and final year, high-level university students to apply to the Upbeat Program for emerging artists.
