4MBS - 'Curse of the Gothic Symphony'

CBAA News, 17th May 2012

The acclaimed documentary film 'The Curse of the Gothic Symphony' will be screened at Event Cinemas in Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra and Newcastle, telling the story of how Brisbane’s community radio station 4MBS Classic FM played an important part in the 28-year quest to mount a performance of the world’s largest symphony.

In December 2010, over five hundred Australian performers came together under the baton of Maestro John Curro to stage the biggest symphony ever composed – the Gothic Symphony. Filmed over seven years, this gripping, funny and inspiring feature-length documentary, The Curse of the Gothic Symphony, follows their epic journey.

The documentary highlights the sheer determination and tenacity that is a hallmark of the community broadcasting sector in Australia.
