Megan Washington & Queensland Symphony Orchestra (AUS)

Queensland Premiere

"Megan Washington has a voice that dances with, wraps around, skates across and creates instant melodies." The West Australian
"★★★★½ - Don't be on the wrong side of the history being made at these shows." The Sydney Morning Herald

With her feet once firmly rooted in jazz, Megan Washington burst onto the Australian music scene in 2008 with a unique and evolving approach to indie-pop and alternative rock.

The two-time ARIA Award-winner and multi-platinum selling artist and her band will join Queensland Symphony Orchestra conducted by John Foreman, performing her forthcoming album in full and a selection of favourites from her previous three.

Don’t miss one of the defining Australian female singers of our age in this magnificent orchestral collaboration.
