In an international collaboration, Queensland Music Festival (QMF) will draw on the spirit of the Anzacs to present One Hundred & One Years, a series of inspiring concerts that both commemorates the sacrifice made by our armed forces and celebrates the peace that we enjoy today.
Naomi has been announced as a soloist for these very special open-air concerts in honour of the men and women who fought for their country. One Hundred & One Years will put the spotlight on young actors and musicians, including specially formed 30-piece community brass bands and a chorus of narrators in both Townsville and Brisbane.
From Wagner to Tipperary, music from the last 101 years (1914-2015) is interwoven with rarely seen archival footage and evocative readings sourced from diaries, letters, and soldiers’ own stories.
Celebrating the spirit of reconciliation and respect, QMF will present, for the first time in Australia, the world-renowned Saxon Wind Philharmonic from Germany, playing alongside our stellar Australian Army bands. Don’t miss your chance to witness this powerful and fitting tribute to those, past and present, who have laid down their lives in the pursuit of peace.
One Hundred & One Years plays Jezzine Barracks, Townsville and Riverstage Brisbane on 16, 17 and 19 July 2015.
