The Queensland Symphony Orchestra is used to wowing appreciative audiences when they perform in concerts halls but recently they put on a performance with a difference, surprising people at Brisbane’s South Bank with a pop-up performance.
Celebrating the Queensland Symphony Orchestra’s move into a new state of the art studio at South Bank, the performance started with a lone drummer who was then joined by more and more members of the orchestra playing Ravel’s Bolero. The curious crowd continued to grow, enjoying the free concert which soon featured every member of the orchestra.
The magic of this memorable performance was captured by two Panasonic AJ-HPX3100G cameras and three Panasonic AG-HPX250EN handheld cameras in 1080 25P AVC Intra 100 video format. A GoPro camera was also used. This ensured that anyone not lucky enough to be in South Bank that day could enjoy this special performance in high definition and not miss a moment.
The Queensland Symphony Orchestra is renowned for its high quality, breathtaking performances of both classical and modern compositions that engage audiences of all musical tastes, interests and ages.
Enjoy the orchestra’s performance, conducted by Tecwyn Evans, by watching the video above, which was produced by ABC TV Brisbane and directed by Gary Johnson.
