Experience the music of the next generation of composers brought to life by members of Queensland Symphony Orchestra. Hear QSO musicians perform 29 new works composed by students from across Queensland. This event showcases music developed with QSO’s Craig Allister Young and Timothy Tate in a program designed to encourage the composers of tomorrow to expand their musical ideas and find their own artistic voice. 

This year's theme revolves around the concept of "home", with our young composers drawing inspiration from personal reflections. We extend a special thank you to the Elders from Inala Wangarra for guiding our participants through insightful discussions about the essence of home.
