Camerata – Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra, promises an exceptional evening out for regional Queenslanders in June, as they present Camerata Live!

Performing without a conductor, Camerata’s players have established a reputation for passionate, exciting performances that engage audiences of all ages, whatever their experience.

“Camerata shows that you don’t need to look very far for world-class talent.”

Charlene Li, Artshub

Known for its adventurous programming, and building on their highly successful 2018 tour of Western Queensland, Camerata will present a program where the words contemporary and classic sit side by side, bringing together new Australian music with great classical music heroes.

With investment from the Tim Fairfax Family Foundation, Camerata has commissioned a new work from emerging composer, Samuel Dickenson. This piece will have its world premiere on this tour featuring in the concert program in each community. Mr Dickenson has recently travelled to Fraser Island (K’gari) as the source of inspiration for this new work, a focus of which is the shipwreck of the NZHS Maheno, which lies aground on 75 Mile Beach.

As part of their touring initiatives, Camerata will run a fun and interactive education and community engagement program including workshops with local musicians and students, concerts at kindergartens and aged care facilities. Camerata are looking forward to collaborating with the Bundaberg Youth Orchestra in a performance not to be missed!

“The crowd went nuts, as they should, in a work where every player counts as a soloist and individuals are visibly empowered and relishing it”.

Mr Martin Buzacott, The Australian

This tour is made possible with the generous support of the Tim Fairfax Family Foundation and the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.

Camerata are a company in residence at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC).
