Queensland Symphony Orchestra Chief Executive Craig Whitehead said, “The Maestro series is a range of exciting concerts featuring favourite classics from the masters, thrilling new compositions and some rare orchestral gems, all performed live by internationally acclaimed conductors, soloists and the talented musicians of Queensland Symphony Orchestra.
“We are delighted to welcome Mapei as a Supporting Partner of the series.”
Founded in Milan in 1937, and with production facilities in 36 countries, including Australia (local base in Wacol, Queensland) Mapei is a world leader in the production of adhesives and chemical products for the building industry, with a strong focus on eco-sustainability and social responsibility.
Mapei’s connection to the arts runs deep, as their products have helped restore many iconic cultural venues around the world including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, the La Scala Theatre in Milan, and the “Antonio Salinas” Museum of Archaeology in Palermo.
Mapei Managing Director Area Manager Pacific Philip Gray said, “Mapei is proud to announce our partnership with Queensland Symphony Orchestra. Social responsibility is a key pillar of Mapei’s commitment to sustainability.
“We believe that in order to grow, not only do we need to achieve economic success, we also need to be socially responsible to all the communities we are part of. We look forward to the Queensland Symphony Orchestra being our next cultural partnership.”
The next Maestro concert for 2020 is Musical Sorcery on Saturday 7 March in QPAC’s Concert Hall.
