It has been a great opportunity to really examine who we are and what makes the Festival unique. </p><p>Our mission is simple: to produce a biennial festival of music, achieving international excellence in partnership with diverse communities throughout Queensland. The real challenge came in expressing a unified vision, one that encompasses everything from community skills development projects in remote areas of the state, to performances by internationally acclaimed artists in concert halls. </p><p>The answer is that musical excellence is at the heart of everything we do, whether it is a participatory community project or an opportunity for Queensland audiences to experience a virtuosic performance. Each project is unique for QMF, but the primary goal of our program defines our vision: to transform lives through unforgettable musical experiences. </p><p>Those of you who were able to join us in 2009 for events such as Cannot Buy My Soul at Brisbane Riverstage, The Road Were On in Charleville, Hidden Republic on Thursday Island or Earth Machine Music in Winton will recall what that experience meant to you. This year, it is my great pleasure to warmly invite everyone along to a QMF event in your community, and to share an unforgettable musical experience with us. </p><p>KATE FARRAR </p><p>chAIR / quEENSLANd MuSIc fEStIVAL </p><p>froM thE MiniStEr for thE ArtS</p><p>froM thE fEStiVAL chAir</p><p>AboUt QUEEnSLAnD MUSic fEStiVALQUEENSLAND MUSIC FESTIVAL (QMF) IS A STATE-WIDE CELEBRATION OF MUSICAL ExCELLENCE, A MAJOR CULTURAL AND ARTISTIC SUCCESS STORY WITH A NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL REPUTATION, AND AN UNPARALLELED GEOGRAPHIC REACH.</p><p>Our vision is to transform lives through unforgettable musical experiences. Over 17 days in July 2011, the best of local, national and international talent will perform every conceivable style of music to Queenslanders from all walks of life, in Brisbane and in 33 regional and remote centres. The majority of events are free, and many will feature large-scale collaborative community engagement, bringing people together through the universal language of music. </p><p>Our regional program will reach new heights in 2011, with tours and events too numerous to mention. Thursday Island will once again host a spectacular opening weekend event. Ailan Kores features a mass community choir with members drawn from across the Torres Strait in performance with the Queensland Youth Orchestra. The Song Trails project wends its way through North and South Queensland, from Charters Towers to Hughenden and Gladstone to Gatton, and Stretch n The Truth will spin tall tales on a tour of Longreach, Winton and the Barcaldine Region. Gladstone and Moranbah will play host to Classic Country, a unique event featuring Australias leading country artists with the orchestral talents of Camerata of St Johns. The regional program culminates in three nights of compelling music theatre at Bowens Foreshore, in a major community production that explores the history of Australian South Sea Islanders in Behind The Cane. </p><p>In Brisbane, the Festival will open with a stunning new work by composer Elena Kats-Chernin inspired by the Australian childrens classic The Little Green Road to Fairyland. The Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts will be </p><p>awash in a different kind of fairy dust, with the world premiere of DragQueensLand, a musical exploration of the underground world of drag in Brisvegas that has flourished over the decades. Other program highlights include Randy Newman in concert with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, while Paul Kelly will return to Riverstage, this time with Paul Grabowsky and members of the Australian Art Orchestra for the first performance in Brisbane of Meet Me in the Middle of the Air.</p><p>QMF continues its commitment to commissioning new works, featuring an extraordinary number of world premieres of works by Australian composers, writers and directors. Anna Goldsworthys award winning memoir Piano Lessons will be brought to life for the first time on stage, replete with live performances by Anna as she takes us through her extraordinary musical journey. For those who are looking for home-grown fun and frivolity, The Queensland Country Comfort Hour will delight with Rockwiz team Brian Nankervis and Julia Zemiro being joined by a host of brilliant musical talent. </p><p>No matter what your musical inclinations or where you will be in the state this July, QMF will engage you with music in its many shapes and forms. Live music is uplifting and inspiring, its language transcends boundaries. QMF is a great time to get out there and take some risks, and to experience live music like you have never heard it before.</p></li><li><p>2 3</p><p>With an unparalleled geographic reach and a strong commitment to commissioning new works that weave together the many stories of our State, the Queensland Music Festival brings the best of local, national and international talent to more than 33 regional and remote areas. </p><p>Since 1999, this biennial event has been showcasing outstanding talent to Queenslanders and visitors from all walks of life, from our remote communities to our metropolitan centres. </p><p>Its a signature event for the State, bringing people together to explore and enjoy the arts, as well as celebrate our identity and sense of place.</p><p>The success of this event is well recognised, and many communities and participants have been inspired to continue their musical journey beyond the Festival itself with activities, concerts and workshops happening in the months and years following.</p><p>The Queensland Music Festival takes chances, inviting communities to partner in large-scale events, and in creating and performing new works with internationally-acclaimed artists. </p><p>In 2011, we will see world premiere performances in Bowen and Thursday Island, featuring new works that highlight local culture and great talent.</p><p>I invite you to come along and enjoy Queensland Music Festival 2011! </p><p>THE HONOURABLE RACHEL NOLAN MP </p><p>MINIStER fOR fINANcE ANd thE ARtS</p><p>Since Deborah Conway's first Festival in 2009, Queensland Music Festival has taken a fresh look at our mission and vision, to ensure that our program remains closely aligned to the core values of the organisation.
