MUSICIANS from across the Western Downs will join forces with the world-class Queensland Symphony Orchestra when they come to perform in Chinchilla for the first time next week.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, October 25 and 26, musicians from QSO will run workshops and instrument demonstrations with primary and secondary students in Chinchilla, Roma and surrounding areas, as well as community musicians from Chinchilla Town Band and Chinchilla Adult String Ensemble.

The visit will culminate in a free concert at Chinchilla Cultural Centre on Wednesday 26 October at 6pm and will bring the town's musical community together to perform with QSO musicians in an evening of much-loved orchestral classics.

It will also be the first time QSO's new graphite instruments hit the road, giving the audience the very first glimpse of the stunning instruments, designed to better endure the bustle of transportation.

The visit will double as the launch of the inaugural Chinchilla Miles Roma (CMR) Initiative.

The CMR Initiative is an innovative partnership between principal partner Australia Pacific LNG and QSO, which aims to deliver quality music education and concert experiences to students and the community.
