Music heavyweights join Queensland Symphony Orchestra Board

Music heavyweights join Queensland Symphony Orchestra Board
December 9, 2014

With the applause only just quiet after the critical and commercial success of the extraordinary world premiere of Journey through the Cosmos led by international super star physicist Professor Brian Cox OBE, and the Grand Finale performance for Chief Conductor Johannes Fritzsch, the Queensland Symphony Orchestra (QSO) has welcomed two Directors to the Board.

QSO Chair Greg Wanchap has announced that Australian music great James Morrison AM and Professor Margaret Barrett, Head of the School of Music at the University of Queensland, joined the Board in November.

The announcement follows the appointments of Rod Pilbeam from AEG Ogden and Page Maxson from Australia Pacific LNG Pty Ltd to the Board earlier this year.

Commenting on the appointments, Wanchap explained “the combination of James Morrison and Professor Margaret Barrett presents a more than formidable force for QSO.

“It is an absolute coup to have them both accept Director positions and the entire Orchestra looks forward to the years ahead; it promises to be an exciting ride for all involved.”
