Musica! experience designed to hit the right note for fine arts audience Gladstone Regional Council is proud to partner with the Rotary Club of Gladstone Midday to present, Musica! 2018. Gladstone Region Mayor Matt Burnett said Musica!, a series of concerts, workshops and a gala event, was expected to attract strong interest at the Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre (GECC) on July 28 and 29. “Musica! encourages a successful collaboration between professional and emerging local artists and enables the community to experience music styles which are not often seen in our region,” Councillor Burnett said. Musica! debuted in 2015 with a sell-out concert in Gladstone attracting more than 400 people. This year’s music selections will highlight opera, jazz and Indigenous song. Musica! 2018 Gala Concert on July 28 from 7pm will offer a feast of classical and Indigenous music featuring Australia’s leading artists and Gladstone’s own home-grown talent, accompanied by a highend food and wine experience. Stefan Cassomenos, Australia’s finest concert pianist will accompany Claire Munting (Mezzo Soprano), Liane Keegan (Dramatic Contralto), Monica Trapaga (Jazz), along with Gladstone’s own Sim Kelly and Jessica Johnson. Councillor Rick Hansen said a Queensland Symphony Orchestra string duo performance would be a special feature of the night. “This is a great opportunity for Gladstone Region residents to enjoy an evening of fine arts in a regional setting,” he said. “The following day community groups and individuals will have an opportunity to be tutored and perform with professional artists in their fields,” Cr Hansen said. Workshops on July 29 facilitated by Claire Munting, Liane Keegan and Stefan Cassomenos will focus on vocal technique, choral work and piano and will be followed by Musica! Community Concert in the afternoon. Workshops are open to residents aged from 10 to adult with limited places and bookings required.
