Having performed around the world with one of the foremost entertainers of our modern time.  Ave Maria has now achieved more that 15 million hits on You Tube and Mirusia will  sing that version on the concert.

    Lead by Maestro Patrick Pickett, the Pops will bring a variety of music you have grown to know and love and will include music of the Glenn Miller Tribute Show.

    Also joining the Pops is Deborah O'Toole whose career in the ABBA revival group positioned her as one of Australia's foremost theatre and stage entertainers.

    Add to this the amazing sounds of the Queensland Police pipes & Drums and we'll have a spectacle that will rival the great Tattoo's of the world.

    The program will include: We Are Australian, Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, You'll Never Walk Alone, Highland Cathedral, In The Mood and many more.  A variety concert with a selection of music that has made the Pops Orchestra one of the most appealing to a wide audience.  Quality entertainment at its best.

    As part of this tour the Pops will be providing a unique opportunity for some of the highly developed young musicians in the Gladstone Rockhampton area with an opportunity to perform with the pops in concert.  In Gladstone students will be provided with an opportunity to watch the Pops rehearsal with the artists in a unique open rehearsal experience.
