T150 Let's Celebrate

At Townsville Civic Theatre on 2nd April 2016 at 7:30pm

The concert was part of Townsville’s 150th anniversary celebrations. It featured a variety of homegrown talent, including ARIA Award-winning performer David Campbell, Dirty Dancing musical star Kurt Phelan, The Voice Australia’s Luke Kennedy and many more.

The soundtrack to the evening was music performed by about 50 musicians made up of the Band of the First Battalion Royal Australian Regiment (1RAR) and the Barrier Reef Orchestra.

Barrier Reef Orchestra are proud to have been chosen to perform at this event celebrating 150 years of Townsville cultural Life.

We performed with Bronwyn Douglass as our Special Guest artist. Bronwyn last year won the 2015 Australian Concerto & Vocal Competition Open Vocal Section, and as part of that award she sang with us at the T150 Concert.
