A MUSICAL SPECTACULAR CELEBRATING THE POWER OF A UNITED COMMUNITY
When an abundant supply of music is discovered under the ground, a town is built to mine the natural resource. An historic flood threatens to destroy everything and the citizens must come together again to recapture their spirit and reveal the true meaning of co-operation and kinship.
A QMF signature event, The Power Within was a free outdoor musical spectacular that drew on exceptional artistry of all ages from the heart of Queensland’s coalfields featuring a cast of hundreds including massed choirs, stunning instrumentalists and rich vocal talent.
The Power Within was presented by Queensland Music Festival, Isaac Regional Council and Queensland Government.
This project had been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, and through the Ministry for the Arts’ Festivals Australia program.
The project had received additional support from the Queensland Government through the Queensland Arts Showcase Program, and through the Department of the Premier and Cabinet as part of its commitment to maintaining and building safe, connected and cohesive communities.
