This event is over.

The 90-member Queensland Youth Symphony is a world class youth orchestra from Brisbane, Australia, commencing its 14th international tour in Singapore, before continuing to Austria and Germany. Under conductor Simon Hewett, the orchestra is joined by the extraordinary didgeridoo soloist William Barton in a work composed by Barton titled Apii Thatini Mu Murtu, translated as To Carry a Coolamon on Country Together. For two decades, Barton has forged a peerless profile as a performer and composer in the classical musical world, from the Philharmonic Orchestras of London and Berlin to historic events at Westminster Abbey, Anzac Cove and the Beijing Olympics. Two pictorial masterpieces complete the program. La Mer is perhaps the most famous musical depiction of the beauty, majesty, and awe-inspiring power of the sea, while Pictures at an Exhibition is an evocative, musical promenade by Mussorgsky through an exhibition of paintings by his close friend Victor Hartmann, brilliantly orchestrated by Ravel.
