Dmitry Sinkovsky: the Singing Violin – Presented by the Brandenburg Orchestra @ Concert Hall
Aug 8 @ 7:30 pm

He sings. He bows. He disrupts

One man. Two maestros.

Get ready for take off. Dmitry’s violin will lift you among the clouds. Spirits soar. Hearts are uplifted. You’re flying in the infinite blue.

Then he lets his hair down to become the emotional countertenor. Passions flow. Souls ache. You’re transported to a world of exquisite inner sensitivity.

Virtuosity, versatility and vivacity combine in one man. The unique Dmitry Sinkovsky is back performing Vivaldi and Locatelli with the Brandenburg.

No.2 Homeward – Presented by ASQ @ Conservatorium Theatre
Aug 12 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Presented by
In association with Griffith University

Britten String Quartet no 1 in D major op 25
Paul Stanhope String Quartet no 2
Dvořák String Quartet no 13 in G major op 106

A spirit of youthful exuberance and boundless confidence energises this concert. Rejuvenated by his time in America, Dvořák’s return to his native Bohemia was a joyful homecoming, inspiring a flood of musical ideas in his G major String Quartet.

Arriving in America in his late twenties, Benjamin Britten enjoyed a sense of supreme confidence as a composer.  In his String Quartet no 1, he sets out to impress in a work that abounds in joie de vivre and originality.

In his second string quartet, Australian composer, Paul Stanhope, evokes the emotionally charged experience of the Jewish migrants who made Australia their home during World War II.

The three works together compose a rich tapestry drawn from themes of exile and return, and inspirations from the old world and the new.

Gympie Muster – including Hillbilly Goats @ Various Locations
Aug 24 – Aug 27 all-day

In its 36th year in 2017, Gympie Music Muster has pulled together a stellar all-Aussie line-up led by pop starlet Jessica Mauboy.

The ARIA-winning singer will headline the Queensland festival which boasts a decidedly more country/country rock feel this year, also locking in headliners Adam Brand, Busby Marou and Graeme Connors for the four-day extravaganza.

Mauboy says, “I have ALWAYS dreamed of playing The Muster. This is an honour and a thrill and I am going bring my best country A-game.”

The Muster’s program director Jeff Chandler says, “We’re continuing to build on what we’ve always done, providing a variety of entertainment, while sticking firmly to our country roots.”

Festival favourites, the Hillbilly Goats exude an undeniable passion for mountain music, the instruments and the harmonies.  Their mission is to strip back the layers of modern music and transport you on a journey that began centuries ago when the immigrants first settled in the Appalachian Mountains of America.  These guys aren’t just a band – they’re a show!

Their recordings paint a picture of traditional songs from 1710 through to the 1940’s with a high energy quirky edge.  Featuring Banjo, Bones, Double Bass, Fiddle, Tap Dancing, 3 part Harmonies and more, there is a tale told of the history of Mountain Music’s evolution into Blues, Country & Bluegrass.

If you’re haven’t seen the Hillbilly Goats yet, check them out and see what all the fuss is about.  They sure know how to Raise A Ruckus and you are guaranteed to be entertained – OLD TIME STYLE!
