A night of orchestral music and performing arts.
The Show Will Go On
Orchestral Manoeuvres will continue this evening, just indoors!
The free performance by Gold Coast Philharmonic Orchestra for Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Park was scheduled to take place at Palm Beach Parklands tonight, Sunday 17th February, but due to heavy showers forecast to continue throughout the day will now be moved to nearby Palm Beach Currumbin State High School Hall.
This FREE concert for all ages has plenty of seating and will commence at 5.30pm as previously scheduled.
Combining orchestral music and choral choirs with bold animated projections, stunning costumes and physical performance, this innovative multi-media concert is set to dazzle audiences.
The 60-member Gold Coast Philharmonic Orchestra, led by Conductor Mark Turpin and Concert Master Margaret McAteer, and featuring soloists Kathleen Procter-Moore and Grace Bawden, will provide the soaring soundtrack to the evening.
To start the night off, vocal ensembles, Voice Weavers and Imbari will perform the sounds of the sea under the direction of Stringmansassy songstress, Kacey Patrick, based around songs of the ocean. The musical program will build to the spectacular crescendo provided by dance theatre company Polytoxic performing a modified version of Trade Winds.
Patrons are advised that the concert will remain a free all ages event, and that the new venue hall has seating, so they will not be required to bring their own chairs as per previous park location.
Tonight’s performance will commence at 5.30pm as previously scheduled.
Trade Winds was developed with the support of 2012 FreeRange at Metro Arts, and has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
Dune Cafe and La Bocca Pizza will be providing a variety of food options to cater to a variety of tastes. A sausage sizzle and delicious slices of gourmet pizza, complete with cold drinks and ice cream will be running for the duration of the event.
