Cabaret Ensemble of The Queensland Orchestra
to perform in Montville Theatre-in-the-Park
on Saturday, June 20th, 3.30 pm
For the first time, and by special arrangement with The Queensland Orchestra, this highly talented ensemble is to play on the Sunshine Coast. Twelve classically trained musicians who call themselves 'X-Collective' will entertain with their unique brand of orchestral music, jazz, and popular standards, all with a zany twist.
Craig Young, X-Collective's founder, believes that their blend of cabaret style with a classical emphasis ideally suits the musical diversity of the ensemble. "From Tchaikovsky to Copeland, Grieg to Gershwin, plus a scintillating new version of Madonna's great hit Like a Virgin tossed in for good measure, we want the audience to leap from their seats. Everyone should feel that a standing ovation is the order of the day!" Young says.
Why X? "It's the X-factor, of course, the unknown quantity that we bring to each performance," Young adds. "We like to keep our audience guessing. This is not concert hall music, stuffy and sleep-inducing, but part of the Wow-factor! that is inherent in all good musical performance."
Performing in Montville Theatre-in-the-Park will be another First for the ensemble and for The Queensland Orchestra. After the success of the Gala Opening there in January 2004, when over 1,700 people came to see Karin Schaupp and Combo Fiasco, the stage is set for yet another late-afternoon entertainment that is unique and different.
Bring your blanket, deck chair, and champagne. Join us for some real twilight entertainment, commencing at 3.30pm-5.30pm. And come early to obtain the best position.
Price: Adults $20, Concession $15, Children $7.
