Movie music for charity

THE magic of the movies will come alive at a charity concert in Proserpine this weekend.

On Sunday, July 12, the 50-piece Queensland Youth Orchestra's Wind Symphony will present an afternoon of pure movie magic.

Led by conductor and former Principle Euphonium player David Law, the orchestra will perform orchestral themes by world-famous composer John Williams.

Among the orchestra's repertoire will be unforgettable tracks from blockbuster movies such as Harry Potter, Raiders of the Lost Ark, E.T., Jaws and Superman.

Singer Hanna Grondin is also set to delight with her performances of popular movie songs such as "Somewhere" from West Side Story, "Happy" from Despicable Me 2 and "Let It Go" from Frozen.

Grondin is studying a Bachelor of Musical Theatre at the Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University.

Aged just 19, she has already played the roles of Chip in Beauty and the Beast (2009) and Eponine in Les Miserables (2011).

Conductor David law said Sunday's concert in Proserpine was the first of six for the orchestra during a five-day North Queensland tour, with further concerts in Mackay, Nebo and Moranbah.

Entry is a $2 gold coin donation, with proceeds from the event to be donated to a charity.
