Come and meet Queensland Symphony Orchestra and embark on an action-packed musical journey. Weave your way through the stormy drama of a Brahms Hungarian Dance, and float on the breeze in Kats-Chernin’s Dance of the Paper Umbrellas. Composer and presenter Paul Rissman will be live on stage to guide your young music lovers through the concert experience culminating in a performance of Leon and the Place Between.

This interactive musical tale follows a young magician and is jam-packed with mystery and wonder. Leon's escapades will be brought to life by the majestic force of the orchestra, conducted by Jen Winley. Closing with the triumphant theme from Star Wars, Sounds Like an Orchestra is the perfect introduction to the magnificent world of live orchestral music.
