Don’t miss Wave Festival taking place at the Brisbane Powerhouse this April which will feature the esteemed Queensland Symphony Orchestra performing alongside several of the biggest names in music, offering a unique blend of classic and modern. Wave Festival will take place over two nights separated into three different programs, and it’s a must for those that love either classical or modern pop music or both!
The first two programs of Wave Festival will take place on the festival’s first night: the first will see Queensland Symphony Orchestra will take to the stage alongside The Jezabels’ Heather Shannon, poet Luka Lesson, composer George Hamilton, and more. Heather Shannon has composed film music, orchestral pieces, and chamber music alongside being a member of Australian alternative band The Jezabels, who have toured worldwide, released three huge albums, and been nominated for a number of ARIA Awards. Luka Lesson will offer something special with powerful performance poetry alongside renowned composer George Hamilton. Closing the first part of Wave Festival will be an unmissable performance of John Adams’ Chamber Symphony.
Wave Festival’s second program will feature the Queensland Symphony Orchestra performing alongside Australian hip-hop icons Horrorshow (also celebrating their 10th anniversary). Expect an incredible performance as it’s their first time to collaborate on stage with an orchestra, performing songs from their newest albums Bardo State and Kings Amongst Many, as well as fan favourites from Inside Story and The Grey Space.
The third and final program of Wave Festival will have the Queensland Symphony Orchestra performing with The Kite String Tangle - the solo electronic project of Brisbane’s Danny Harley. This unique collaboration will mix Danny Harley’s catchy electronic beats to the orchestral sounds of the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, and it’s not to be missed.
See one or all of these unmissable performances at Wave Festival on April 20 and April 21, taking place at the Brisbane Powerhouse. Wave Festival will be unlike anything you’ve heard or seen before!
