Heritage event 'Opera At Jimbour' will return to its home at Western Downs (Queensland) for a weekend of intimate opera, chamber music, food, and wine to kick off Queensland Music Trails.
Set among the grounds of Jimbour House, the event will come to life with an array of performances from a selection of sought after Queensland performers.
For the first time in the history of 'Opera At Jimbour', Jimbour House will open its doors to the famed estate, debuting a new format with performances taking place both inside and outside in the grounds. Attendees can expect to hear the sounds of Mozart, Rossini, Handel and Luigi Denza brought to life in the gardens and within the walls.
Musicians from Opera Queensland and Ensemble Q will feature throughout the event, including violinist Natsuko Yoshimoto, cellist Trish Dean and clarinetist Paul Dean, who will be joined by an orchestra of chamber musicians from Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University, led by Dane Lam.

'Opera At Jimbour' includes two gala events, a Hangar Concert, a recital inside the Drawing Room and tour through the halls of the homestead.
“With international borders closed, everyone in Australia is looking for a one-of-a-kind experience in their own backyard,” QMF CEO Joel Edmondson says. “The events along the first ever Outback Music Trail are a new way to get to know the diverse people and places of Outback Queensland.”
“Nothing makes memories like seeing something totally amazing in a place you would never expect. We couldn’t be happier to kickstart the very first trail in the beautiful surroundings of the Western Downs.”
