A lonely traveler is accompanied by a melancholic violin, and an airport arrival is celebrated with a symphony. The orchestra even plays when someone learns to ride a bike! Adapted for Queensland Symphony Orchestra by Brisbane-born composer Joe Twist. Based on Australian author Clare McFadden's award-winning picture book of the same name, set in Brisbane.

Bookings for this QSO Education concert can be made through the Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre. Booking link coming soon.
