2019 Festival Program

Saturday, July 27th

19:30 - Townsville Civic Theatre - Townsville

Governor's Gala - Traces and Transformations

Hosted by Christopher Lawrence

One aspect of ‘Origins’ is the exploration of music transformed. From Chinese folk music, to Schoenberg’s truly exquisite ‘Verklärte Nacht', this program not only introduces our Festival composer-in-residence, but pays homage to the vivid worlds of song, tone poem and an instrument Mozart enjoyed taking to new heights.
