All about that bass, no treble…Posted: May 18, 2015
Griffith University is a big place spread across five campuses, so how much do you know about the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University (QCGU)?
The QCGU, aka “The Con”, is a key part of the University, strategically located in the heart of South Bank. The Con has facilities at the Gold Coast and Woolloongabba which support the Popular Music and Musical Theatre programs.
The QCGU is the institution of first choice for many of Queensland’s most talented musicians. World class programs and academic staff have ensured that the QCGU produces high achieving and internationally recognised musicians like Grammy award winner Tim Munro, Katie Noonan, Kate Miller-Heidke, and Dami Im.
It gets better…..did you know that QCGU will host over 250 performances in 2015 including operas and musicals? The QCGU Symphony Orchestra, instrumental soloists and groups, jazz big bands, jazz combos, rock/pop bands and live coding experimental electronic musicians will all take to the stage during 2015! Hardly a day goes by without a performance occurring at the Con. Interested? Then check out the ConEvents web site http://www.conevents.com.au/ to access the current performance calendar.
