Ruth Murphy (Year 9) has been accepted to play second violin with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra (QSO) as part of their prodigy project for the Redland City.
The QSO will perform 'Sounds of the Deep' at the Redland Performing Arts Centre on Thursday 3 October. As part of this performance, students who live in or attend a school in Redland City were given the opportunity to audition to be an honorary member of the QSO.
Ruth auditioned on the Violin 2 part on Thursday the 4 July for Mendelssohn's 'Hebrides Overture' and Rimsky-Korsakov's 'Scheherazade' and was selected as one of two violinists to participate in this performance.
Ruth will take part in rehearsals over the September school holidays and she will be mentored by QSO musicians, rehearse with a recognised professional conductor and perform on stage.
