Do you know someone who previously enjoyed attending the orchestra, but have been unable to due to the COVID-19 pandemic? Do you think that person deserves to have the Queensland Symphony Orchestra travel to their house to hold a private concert? If the answer to both of these questions is a resounding “YES!”, then this newest initiative from Queensland Symphony Orchestra may be something to consider.
The Queensland Symphony Orchestra has announced that from Monday, they will be launching the We’re Sharing The Joy initiative via their website. Once it goes live, the community will be able to nominate someone who deserves a private performance. Those successful will have QSO musicians play private performances on their doorsteps sometime in early December 2020.
Like many other performing arts organisations across Queensland, Australia and the world; Queensland Symphony Orchestra had a majority of their 2020 season impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. They have kept busy by a series of online concerts, a performance in-front of 30,000 at the Gabba for the only Brisbane-based AFL Grand Final likely for a generation, and several other initiatives such as this.
