The Great Expedition – TRC/TCO Concert


Join us in a family concert as Toowoomba Concert Orchestra and author, Peter Carnavas, bring his children’s book ‘The Great Expedition’ to life. As Peter reads his book the orchestra will skilfully weave their music throughout the story, including music from Indiana Jones and Batman.

Follow a group of 5 young explorers as they travel across wild country to deliver a special package.   The journey will be punishing. It will test the resolve of our explorers. Most of all it will provide us with a pair of unlikely heroes to admire and remember for many years to come.  There will be a chance for the young children to get to know the instruments of an orchestra and join in all the fun.
