Voyages celebrates the thrill and bravery of journey-making. With Marco Bellasi at the helm of The University of Queensland Symphony Orchestra, our program embarks by presenting the Australian premiere of Raise Hawaiki: Kealaikahiki (The Way to Tahiti) by Hawai'i-born composer Michael-Thomas Foumai, a work inspired by ancient Polynesian feats of sea-faring.

UQ School of Music student In Yi Chae then scales the heights of Tchaikovsky’s beloved Violin Concerto, this being her final year of study before setting forth as a young music professional.

Finally, Camille Saint-Saëns’ Organ Symphony in C minor, like Beethoven’s famous 5th symphony in the very same key, creates a narrative of hope and triumph over adversity. From the agitation of its opening to the exhilarating C major conclusion, the Organ Symphony promises to take you on a dramatic musical journey.
