The UQ Symphony Orchestra will then be joined in a performance of Fauré’s beautiful Requiem by the UQ Chorale and singers from Ambrose Treacy College, Brisbane Boys College, Brisbane State High School, Clayfield College, Canterbury College, Kenmore State High School, Moreton Bay College, St Laurence’s College, and St Peters Lutheran College.
