National Geographic - Symphony for our World

Combining stunning National Geographic natural history footage with an original symphony performed by Camerata, Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra – Symphony for our World – is a breathtaking musical journey.

A live orchestra and choir serenade will serenade viewers and take them on an adventure through some of the world’s most incredible wildlife imagery from over 130 years of National Geographic history. The moving live orchestral performance has been touring the world throughout 2019 and will perform for one night only at HOTA, Home of the Arts, on the purpose-built outdoor stage.

From the depths of the sea, along coastlines, over mountains and soaring into the sky – the incredible theme of imagery and original symphony have been created by Emmy and BAFTA-nominated, Bleeding Fingers Music.
