Where is it: All over Queensland! There are a lot of performances scheduled - check their website for details on the specific event!
What's it all about: For 70 years the Queensland Symphony Orchestra (QSO) has been bringing music to the people of Queensland! Along with all of their typical orchestral performances, QSO puts some excellent performances aimed at families and young kids!
How can I join in: Visit QSO's website where you can see all their upcoming events! There is a page dedicated to Family Events!
Tell me more: QSO puts on some great events for many different target audiences and there are plenty that welcome kids and families of all ages! The family performances, often called 'Kiddies Cushion Concerts' are a great concept where you can take a seat or sit on a cushion up close to the orchestra - great for restless little kids and even better when you are invited to get up and dance! Throughout the year there are different themed cushion concerts, with themes such as superheros, movies and fairy tales – we even caught a presentation of Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf which was just amazing! But our favourite would have to be ‘Symphonic Santa’ - a really fun Christmas-themed concert with great music and heaps of entertainment – Santa might even pay you a visit!
