Australian Chamber Orchestra

2023 Season

Embrace the adventure and take the leap.

Wise wooden instruments. Horsehair and rosin. Handmade and bespoke. Craftsmanship that is both ancient and brand new.

The sound of instruments tuning backstage. The murmur of voices and laughter from the foyers. Our footsteps as we walk out onto the stage.

The inhale – from musicians and audience – before the first note.

Unexplored and unexpected sound worlds. Beloved masterpieces heard anew. The thrill of live music. Closer than ever before.

This is ACO 2023.
