Donate now to increase the number of permanent musician positions by seven to a total of 78 by the end of 2017.
Queensland deserves a full strength orchestra of 88 full time musicians. However, did you know that Queensland Symphony Orchestra only employs 71 permanent musicians?
Playing in an undersized orchestra can add to the impact on our musician’s health artistic standards. With your gift today, we can steadily increase the number of permanent musicians over the next three years, starting with filling seven permanent positions in 2017.
Your gift will support your greatest asset – the musicians – and enable us to achieve our vision of creating extraordinary musical experiences that resonate within and beyond our home state of Queensland.
With your help today, we will strive to fill the following musician positions this year:
— Section Principal Viola
— Section Principal Flute
— Associate Principal Cello
— Principal 1st Violin
— Section Musician 1st Violin
— Section Musician 2nd Violin
— Section Musician Viola
“We need a full string section to balance our great woodwind, brass and percussion sections. With a full orchestra, we can create the best sound and take on more epic repertoire!”
Justin Bullock, Double Bass
