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.

Presented by The University of Queensland School of Music in association with QPAC
