Intently held stares between conductor and musician. Quiet suspense. One long wavering first note on strings. Brass and wind instruments at the ready. Then, an eruption of warm sound filling the room. What's certain? Queensland Symphony Orchestra delights the senses. Often, you'll catch them supporting your favourite band (or cinematic production). But, experiencing the troupe centre stage is truly something special.

This August, Superfamous gives you the chance to do exactly that. On Saturday, August 20 and Sunday, August 21, the masterful musos are taking pride of place at QPAC's Concert Hall — and exclusively playing the bangers.

Classical music devotee? Expect the elegance of Debussy's 'Clair de Lune' and the dramatic finale from Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake. New to the scene? Expect your ears to prick at familiar melodies, a boosted mood and the addition of 'orchestral music' to your list of likes.

Queensland Symphony Orchestra's Superfamous takes over QPAC Concert Hall on Saturday, August 20 and Sunday, August 21. Head to the website to grab yourself a ticket.
