About the event

Join Southern Cross Soloists for a special performance to commemorate our silver jubilee anniversary. Southern Cross Soloists celebrates in style with a program of masterworks by composers renowned for their bold risks, brazen  originality, and unusual sounds and textures. These musical mavericks pushed boundaries like never before, leaving their distinctive mark on  all those who followed. From Berlioz's quirky viola showpiece (possibly composed during an opium haze), to Bruch's evocative Kol Nidrei and Debussy's risqué Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune, this program shares some of our favourite works and highlights the outstanding virtuosity of the Southern Cross Soloists. The concert concludes with a piece that has become a signature work  for Southern Cross Soloists, Gershwin's daring and fearless hybrid piano  concerto, Rhapsody in Blue. We continue the festivities after the performance with a special  toast in QPAC's Concert Hall foyer to celebrate 25 years of exquisite  music-making.
