Join Matt Hsu for this special playtime concert with his incredible award-winning Obscure Orchestra.

Winners of the World Music award (2022 Queensland Music Awards), Matt’s orchestra is probably unlike anything you’ve ever seen before! His diverse collective of musicians, artists and performers come together with you, the audience, to perform original music, tell stories and enjoy the simple act of being together in a musical moment.

This special concert, especially for families, offers a new kind of orchestral experience with non-traditional instruments, unique compositions, experimental sounds and heartwarming conversations and stories woven throughout.

Let the Obscure Orchestra take you on an adventure through a world of new sounds and sensations, exciting little ears and opening hearts and minds.

This free event is part of Brisbane City Council’s Lord Mayor’s Children’s Program.
