52 Strings

Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast Area

Indicative Rate * AU$21 to AU$48

HOTA And Camerata Present 52 Strings.

52 Strings pairs two astonishing works that bring together Camerata – Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra, with talented string students and educators from the Gold Coast to create a mass ensemble of 52 strings.

Local players will be invited to play in a rare live performance of Penderecki’s 1960 Threnody to the Victims of Hiroshima. This evocative work brings to life the terrifying sounds of war.

The full orchestra will also tackle one of the most glorious and well-loved works of the string orchestra, Vaughan-Williams’ Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis.

Camerata- Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra completes the program with music from its Helpmann Award nominated concert, Home.

‘The simply splendid Camerata has gained an impressive record of artistic achievement by being flexible in its repertoire, reinterpreting the classics while embracing the new.’ – Carolyn McDowall, The Culture Concept

‘Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra demonstrates not only exceptional high quality orchestral playing by a core group of talented musicians, but they also take risks with alternative programming that is clearly attracting an enthusiastic following.’ – Suzannah Conway, ArtsHub

‘Watch this space. This ensemble is going places.’ – Martin Buzacott, The Australian
