JULY 2021

TCS Contemporary Choral at QLD Pops - Christmas in July

 

There have been many attempts to recreate the Christmas fervour for the second time in the year. In the Northern Hemisphere, it gives retailers a chance to have sales, tapping into the Christmas spending spree. Here in Australia, it is more about nostalgia for those who spent Christmas as a child during winter.


Cold days and snowy nights around a fireplace with family and friends, enjoying feasts of hot roast meats and plum puddings dripping in brandy sauce and custard. Rooms filled with the smell of pine needles and the sound of carols being sung around the piano. Piles of presents waiting to be opened with young and old faces full of hope and excitement.

 

The Queensland Pops Orchestra invites you to venture back to that place as we present Christmas In July. It may not snow, but it will not be hot and humid. Patrick Pickett has put together a concert full of music from around the world that celebrates all the good things about the Christmas season. Our very own Three Tenors will sing traditional and popular Christmas songs. Emma Kavanagh also returns to our stage with her delightful soprano voice.

 

If a bonus Christmas feast of the musical variety sounds like your thing – call it an ‘extra’ celebration – then dig out your winter woollies and join Patrick Pickett and the Queensland Pops Orchestra (who love any excuse for a party) for a fabulous Yuletide knees up with all your favourite Christmas trimmings!

OCTOBER 2021

TCS Contemporary Choral at QLD Pops - Celtic Spectacular

 

The Celtic vibe comes alive in 2021! Think Riverdance, Scottish kilts and pipes, Irish whistles and fiddles, tender love lilts … not to mention all those moving reminiscences on windswept moors and craggy hills across the great Celtic musical landscape.

 

Watch Musical Director Patrick Pickett (a true ‘Lord of the Dance’!) swirl his baton as he works the rich seam of Celtic classics in one of the Queensland Pops’ most requested series of concerts. Hear the legends, the fables, the humour, the melancholy and the euphoria all come to life with some of Australia’s best-loved sings and traditional instrumentalists and dancers. A warm welcome back to special guest stars Gregory Moore and Sarah Calderwood, who will combine the very best elements of Celtic music into one unforgettable package. Returning to showcase his traditional Irish music talents is Kevin Higgins, who plays the concert wooden flute and is a master of the Uilleann Pipes, both of which he plays extensively as soloist and in bands throughout Australia and overseas.

 

Savour the spectacular precision of the all-star line-up of dancers who will be the crowning glory of theCeltic Spectacular: the Watkins Academy of Irish Dance, the OzScot Highland Dancers and the glorious strains of the BBC Pipes and Drums, all of which promise to awaken the ancient spirits and leave you spellbound.
