72 hours of things to do in Gladstone
7pm-9pm: QUEENSLAND'S finest classical musicians are coming to Gladstone.
The Queensland Symphony Orchestra has teamed up with Gladstone Regional Council to present 'Symphony Under the Stars', a free event at the GPC Marina Main Stage.
The concert will be based around the theme of "night music" - meaning anything from the enchanting tones of Samuel Barber's Sure on This Shining Night to the horrifying visions of Mussorgsky's Night on Bald Mountain.
The QSO will be conducted by Daniel Kossov, once Australia's youngest ever concertmaster at 23 with the WA Symphony Orchestra.
Flute soloist Haley Radke will feature on music from Mozart's Magic Flute and Eine Kleine Nachtmusik as well as Vivaldi's Concerto for Flute & Strings.
The event is free, open to all ages and situated outdoors - so bring along a picnic and be serenaded by the sounds of the QSO while surrounded by your family and friends.
Food and drinks will also be available for purchase.
