There have been many attempts to recreate the Christmas fervour for the second time in the year. In the Northern Hemisphere, it gives retailers a chance to have sales, tapping into the Christmas spending spree. Here in Australia, it is more about nostalgia for those who spent Christmas as a child during winter.
Cold days and snowy nights around a fireplace with family and friends, enjoying feasts of hot roast meats and plum puddings dripping in brandy sauce and custard. Rooms filled with the smell of pine needles and the sound of carols being sung around the piano. Piles of presents waiting to be opened with young and old faces full of hope and excitement.
The Queensland Pops Orchestra invites you to venture back to that place as we present Christmas In July. It may not snow, but it will not be hot and humid. Patrick Pickett has put together a concert full of music from around the world that celebrates all the good things about the Christmas season. Our very own Three Tenors will sing traditional and popular Christmas songs. Emma Kavanagh also returns to our stage with her delightful soprano voice.
If a bonus Christmas feast of the musical variety sounds like your thing – call it an ‘extra’ celebration – then dig out your winter woollies and join Patrick Pickett and the Queensland Pops Orchestra (who love any excuse for a party) for a fabulous Yuletide knees up with all your favourite Christmas trimmings!
