Bond raises the maroon curtain on Opera Queensland

Performers Marcus Corowa, Irena Lusiuk and Jess Hitchcock.

Bond University is the final stop on Opera Queensland’s Lady Sings the Maroons tour celebrating the very best of the state’s diverse music. 

On June 10 the ADCO Ampitheatre will host a free show featuring renowned stars performing works by The Saints, Powderfinger, Gladys Moncrieff, Savage Garden, Joe Geia, Kate Miller-Heidke, and Harold Blair. 

It will provide a grand finale to a tour that has criss-crossed the state performing in 22 locations including Proserpine, Winton, Charleville, and Roma. 

Director Laura Hansford, Musical Director Luke Volker and vocalists Jess Hitchcock, Irena Lysiuk and Marcus Corowa all trace their roots to regional Queensland. 

“My Queensland, your Queensland and the next person’s Queensland are vastly different things, and that’s reflected in the music that’s come out of this state,” Ms Hansford said. 

“Lady Sings the Maroons holds a mirror up to our extraordinary state with pride. 

“On this tour, we are debuting a show that sings about the diversity of this state and its people as we try to capture ‘our Queensland’.”
