About this event

SAVE THE DATE - Tickets on SALE from 9am Monday 10th January, 2022

There is something truly magical about live music by the water’s edge. Whether it’s the fresh open air, the still water of the river, or the ebb and flow of a musician’s melodies, we always find ourselves enchanted by the sights and sounds. This is the magical spell of Music by the River featuring the Canberra Symphony Orchestra. Music by the River is proudly presented by Icon Water and Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council.

This is the fifth year the Canberra Symphony Orchestra has played as part of Music by the River and the signature event attracts music lovers from across the region.

Join us for some orchestral classics from Mozart, Vivaldi, Bach and the Beatles . Held in Queen Elizabeth II Park on the banks of the Queanbeyan River, this concert is one the whole family will enjoy.

Members of the public are welcome to start their night from 5pm when gates open. Allocated seating will be open, food will be served and the river will be lapping at the shore ready for a night of music!  If you book allocated seating, you will need to bring your ticket with you on the night - either printed or electronically. Only concrete seating will be sold and allocated this year so please bring along a cushion to sit on.

FAQs

What are the differences between allocated seating and free areas?

If you REGISTER FREE entry we ask that you bring a chair to sit on or a picnic rug to help allocate your COVID Safe seat. Social distancing of 1.5m between each group or person will be encouraged. Free seating (general admission) has no allocated location, but please book to help with event planning and help to manage COVID Safe numbers to the event. General admission is available anywhere in the park (excluding the allocated amphitheatre seating) or on the grass banks on both sides of the river.

Allocated/ticketed seating

Allocated seating space within the Queen Elizabeth II Park’s Amphitheatre is not suitable for people with:

  • wheelchairs or walkers. An area will be reserved for people in wheelchairs on a first come first served basis. Those wanting to locate this area should approach a friendly QPRC employee for assistance.
  • Prams or pushers. There will also be space allocated for pram parking. Prams can be parked in this location so they don’t obstruct others view of the stage.
  • Large coolers or picnic blankets. Best to grab a spot on the lawn for large groups.
  • seating is allocated on first in first seated basis. The seats are on the concrete part of the amphitheatre so we encourage everyone to bring a cushion or a picnic rug to sit on in case of weather that is a little colder than normal.

General Admission (both sides of the river)

Guests are also welcome to seat themselves on the grassed riverbank with a picnic blanket or lowered seating. This seating is FREE but you will need to REGISTER - bring as many people as you like. You are welcome to sit on the grass banks near Ray Morton Park or Queen Elizabeth II Park.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

This event is open to all ages and lovers of music. There is a licenced area which will require ID for purchase. 

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Free parking is available at Riverside Plaza, Kmart, or Collett St car-park (behind the bus interchange). Bike racks are available on site and Queen Elizabeth II Park is connected to the Queanbeyan Riverwalk footpath network.

What can I bring into the event?

For dinner, you are invited to bring your own picnic or you can experience local gourmet street food - beer and wine also available.

Depending on when you arrive at Queen Elizabeth II Park and where you will be seated you could be in the afternoon sun or the cool of the evening, so please bring those things that will make you most comfortable throughout the concert, including an umbrella just in case. 

What is the wet weather plan?

The weather is always an important factor when planning events in our region. As with any outdoor event, preparation is the key to comfort. In the unlikely event that the Music by the River is postponed or cancelled due to bad weather you will be informed through Eventbrite via email or by Council’s Facebook page (www.qprc.nsw.gov.au).
