Concerto Copenhagen land in Brisbane despite volcanic ash

What a hectic morning it’s been! Concerto Copenhagen and Genevieve Lacey were among thousands of travelers whose schedules were disrupted by the cloud of volcanic ash which has now circled the globe twice.

After many frantic phonecalls and with the help of some patient and dedicated Qantas staff the ensemble has now boarded three separate planes from Melbourne to Brisbane. While the situation has been stressful to all involved we’re very grateful to the musicians who have been eager to do everything they can to ensure tonight’s concert in Brisbane can go ahead. As the group will now have reduced rehearsal time in Brisbane they will now perform Program Two featuring works by Telemann, Vivaldi, Handel and Roman, instead of Program One as previously advertised. Full program details will be available in free concert guides at tonight’s concert, or available for download from our website.

Please note that tonight’s concert will start at 7.30pm rather than the usual concert start time of 7pm to allow for the delayed flights. We thank you, the audience and our supporters, for your understanding of the situation and hope you enjoy the concert.
