Music and sport have come together to celebrate the AFL Grand Final coming to the Gabba.

The Queensland Symphony Orchestra has released renditions of the Brisbane Lions and Gold Coast Suns' anthems ahead of their clash at the Gabba tonight.

It comes after Jimboomba Redbacks' juniors starred in the bid to secure the decider at the Gabba on October 24.

Filmed and edited over a few days, the orchestral anthems feature 21 musicians from QSO on the Kangaroo Point Cliffs overlooking Brisbane.

The Orchestra commissioned the new arrangement, which was recorded under the baton of emerging conductor Stefanie Smith.

It's the first time that QSO has performed an AFL anthem.

The orchestra's chief executive, Craig Whitehead, said music and sport belonged together.

"One of the bright things to emerge from 2020 has been seeing Queensland become the home of the AFL," he said.

"Even though the AFL is a sport, there is also a long-standing musical tradition built into the game.

"As any red-blooded AFL team supporter knows, there is no more exhilarating moment than roaring out your team's anthem to celebrate victory.

"As Queensland's largest musical team, we wanted to celebrate this musical connection - and cheer our on our two Queensland teams by performing a rousing rendition of each team's anthem, especially arranged for the glory and splendour of orchestral instruments."

First bounce at the Gabba tonight is at 7.10pm.
