Bribie Island Orchestra brings much joy to residents

Picture and story by Alistair Gray

The Bribie Island Orchestra is playing Handel.

Recently, local lovers of classical music, were treated to an evening of good old-fashioned entertainment by The Bribie Island Orchestra. Held in the local Little Flower Catholic Church, it was a great evening and something that makes living on Bribie so exceptional.

This autumn Concert was the second time the orchestra has performed in two years, thanks to the challenges of Covid. Conducted by long time Bribie resident, Martin White OAM, who gave great insights into each piece of music played. Music played included pieces from Handel, Mozart, Bach, Gounod, Boccherini, Strauss, O’Carolan, Trad and Larry Clark, providing a broad and diverse program. A highlight was when Brynley White, Brisbane Symphony Violinist, gave a solo performance, delighting the audience of about one hundred and eighty.

Martin White OAM paid a special tribute to his wife, Heather, and the team of volunteers who worked tirelessly to make the event happen and provide the fabulous supper at the end of the evening. The big news is another concert is to be held at the end of June. So, watch out for when tickets become available.
