Mirusia to headline "Christmas Spectacular" at Brisbane City Hall
Redland soprano Mirusia will feature as the headline artist at the inaugural Silver Memories Christmas Spectacular at Brisbane City Hall at 3pm on December 19.
Dubbed the angel of Australia by Dutch violinist, Andre Rieu, Mirusia will perform with the Brisbane Symphony Orchestra conducted by Stefanie Smith and the 60-voice Queensland Choir.
Mirusia is an ambassador for Silver Memories, a 24/7 broadcast service for the aged. She has performed with The Seekers, The Wiggles and many famous overseas artists.
Her numerous albums have all debuted at number 1 on the Australian ARIA Charts and her musical talents span the pop, classical, crossover and jazz genres.
"After the year that has been, I am thrilled to be able to perform in a concert of this size. This is a blessing," Mirusia said.
"I am also thrilled to be a part of the ambassadorship for Silver Memories. It is evident by the ticket sales that people are keen to get out again."
Mirusia said the concert was also a kick start to what would be a full 2022.
"Most of what was postponed in 2020 and 2021 has been moved to next year. I will be living out of a suitcase and really busy. People are craving entertainment and absorbing everything that's out there. But this concert is particularly special. We all had a very little Christmas last year and this year will be so much more."
She will be joined by baritone Jason Barry-Smith, who will compere the concert, to perform Christmas favourites. Silver Memories' patron, The Honourable Dame Quentin Bryce AD CVO will also inaugurate proceedings.
