Twilight Classics

At Townsville Civic Theatre on 17th July 2016 at 5:00pm

Join us an evening of drama, romance, hope and serenity as we delve into some of history’s favourite musical masterpieces.

Guest artist Arthur Athan, 2015 Australian Concerto and Vocal Competition winner, will deliver all of the fire and passion of Rachmaninoff’s second piano concerto. Be swept away by the broad brush strokes of Brahms’ fourth symphony, and hear one of Townsville’s very own as we explore David Salisbury’s ‘Townsville Views’ Symphony.
