Throughout the concert, from 7pm on Sunday July 21 at the NRHS Assembly Hall, there will be additional performances from ensembles from the Bachelor of Music program at CQUniversity and the presentation of awards to outstanding soloists and sections. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for concesson and $3 for school-aged children.

This opportunity is presented by Yamaha Music Australia, Creative Capricorn, Queensland Music Festival, and the Central Queensland Conservatorium of Music (CQCM) based at CQUniversity.
