The Melbourne Musicians is a chamber orchestra of 12 string players plus wind and other instruments as required up to about 25.
Since 1975 we have been providing a welcome platform for talented local musicians and composers. Many of our soloists have gone on to successful international careers.
Two such examples are guitarist Slava Grigoryan, who first performed with us at age 12 (and many times since) (His brother Leonard first performed with us at age 11) and intentionally recognised cellist Li Wei Chin, who performed with us aged 15, before going overseas to pursue his studies. Our large repertoire ranges from the 18th century to the present and includes premieres of works by Australian composers as well as others.
