Official Opening Event: 

Brisbane German Week Concert Reception

This year, the concert reception will be the official opening night of Brisbane German Week 2021. At an evening not to be missed, you will enjoy the timeless and unique combination of German art and engineering. Embedded in the stunning setting of the Porsche Centre Brisbane showroom in Newstead, a unique concert experience will be provided in which musicians of the Queensland Youth Orchestras will partner with Alexandra Flood and Timothy Newton from Opera Queensland and the emerging talents of the German Youth Choir.

The Queensland Youth Orchestras (QYO) String Quartet consists of advanced musicians from QYO’s leading orchestra, the Queensland Youth Symphony. QYO is Queensland’s premier youth orchestra training program. Established in 1966 by John Curro AM MBE (1932-2019) QYO has 500 musicians aged from 8 to 24 in 7 orchestras and ensembles, including 3 symphony orchestras, 2 wind orchestras, a string orchestra and big band. Each group has its own program of activities including rehearsals, tutorials, concerts, camps and tours. Simon Hewett is a QYO alumnus and commenced as QYO Director of Music and conductor of QYS in 2020. Simon and QYS have a long and close association with Germany. Between 2005 and 2019, Simon conducted over 500 performances of opera and ballet in Hamburg, and has conducted the Hamburg Ballet at the Salzburg Festival, Spoleto Festival, in the USA, Japan, Hong Kong, Moscow and Australia. The 100-member Queensland Youth Symphony is renowned as a world class youth orchestra. It tours internationally every four years and its last five tours have included Germany, with concerts in Bonn, Hanover, Bamberg, Mannheim, Heidelberg, Ulm, Worms, Würzburg, Freiburg and Ehingen.

 

After the concert, DJ JL Fox will provide the background entertainment with a different type of European style beats. JL is a lead singer, songwriter, DJ, MC and producer. She has a Bachelor of Entertainment and juggles multiple tasks with a smile. JL wowed the audience at the after party of the 2021 German Film Festival in June and you will be able to network and mingle over lounge music, drinks and German-inspired finger food.

With an expected audience of more than 200 guests, there will be no shortage of chances to catch-up with old friends and to create new relationships.
