What's On in Brisbane

QSO - Latin American Gala

Enrico Chapela's orchestral composition Ínguesu is a musical description of one of Mexico's proudest sporting moments - defeating Brazil in the 1999 FIFA Confederations Cup soccer match.

It also highlights the theme of our night - music inspired by Brazil and Mexico. You'll hear music from Latin American composers and composers inspired by Latin America in one inspiring night. Last time Music Director Alondra de la Parra conducted a program of music like this, audiences and reviewers alike went wild. 'In the most exciting Queensland Symphony Orchestra concert in memory, resident music director Alondra de la Parra conducted a never-to-be-forgotten performance that was bursting at the seams with vitality, giving the smiling players a white-knuckle ride that looked as enjoyable as it was terrifying.' Don't miss out on what is sure to be one of the sensations of the 2019 season.
