Best of British

Queensland Pops Orchestra

One of the best-loved orchestral events in the Pops calendar, Best of British is a perennial treat for both audiences and The Queensland Pops Orchestra, and it's back at QPAC's Concert Hall on April 17, 2021.

Embracing the ‘Best of British’ music in all its richness and diversity, the Queensland Pops Orchestra takes you on a journey through green and pleasant lands in a concert that celebrates some of Great Britain’s finest music.

There’ll be soaring strings, dazzling brass fanfares and noble woodwind themes from start to finish in this ever-popular and quintessentially British musical extravaganza. The stirring melody of ‘Land of Hope And Glory’ was a landmark theme not just for composer Sir Edward Elgar, but for British music – and it will return in full symphonic technicolour. Hear the very best of British anthems including 'Rule Britannia' and 'Jerusalem', folk songs, sea shanties and more.

The stirring voices and symphonic sounds culminate in the much-anticipated ‘Pomp and Circumstance’ grand finale with full orchestral and choral forces, leading the audience in true patriotic, flag-waving fervour.

Good to know - For these concerts, Queensland Pops Orchestra welcomes two of opera’s brightest stars: Bass Baritone Sam Hartley and Mezzo Soprano Cassandra Seidemann.  Both graduated in Queensland and joined Opera Queensland’s Young Artist Program which gave them a great launching pad for their individual, soaring international careers.
