Our second major concert for 2018 was held at the end of semester two.
Titled "A Celtic Odyssey", this concert explored the music of the Celtic peoples over the past several hundred years.
We began with traditional songs from the homelands of Ireland, Scotland and Wales, then sang music from and of the diaspora in Canada and Australia, and then presented some modern classics.
Our guest artist for this concert was the City of Brisbane Pipe Band. Formed in 1950, the band proudly wears the McNeill of Barra tartan; plays regularly in local parades, gigs, concerts and festivals; and is an active part of the local piping community, competing in Grade 4 at competitions up and down Australia’s east coast.
QUMS was primarily conducted in this concert by our Musical Director, Robert Stewart. Our Associate Musical Director, Joshua Blake, also conducted several pieces.
