Griffith University Conservatorium Queensland
Presented by BLEACH*

Be swept up in the sonorous sounds of the Queensland Conservatorium Brass ensemble as they play on the Nerang River outdoor stage. In this 60-minute concert trumpets, french horns, trombones and more circle you in brassy tones as the sun sets. It’s loud and a little bit wild.

Selected repertoire includes Fanfare for the Common Man by Aaron Copland and John Ryan; The Earl of Oxfrod’s March by William Byrd and Henri Tomasi Fanfares Liturgiques.

Round out your night with a visit to the Bleach* at Broadbeach Speakeasy with Mohini Cox and Martha Baartz, or wander through the epic lighting installation River of Gold, by After/All, or encounter the physical feats of physical theatre ensemble Gravity and Other Myths. All family friendly and all free.

There’ll be food onsite and a pop-up bar.

All you need to do bring yourselves, a blanket and a few of your best friends.
