After a well earned break Arcko Symphonic Ensemble is back, hoping to continue its valuable work performing overwhelmingly Australian new music from this and the last century, focusing whenever possible on larger scale music often neglected by other organisations. But we need your help!

STAGE ONE: We are planning on kick starting the next stage of Arcko’s evolution in late October this year with a concert featuring ensemble works by Australian female composers Margaret Sutherland, Christine McCombe and a world premier by Karen Heath juxtaposed with solo performances by Arcko members of Australian works for percussion, piano, viola and violin. Can you help us reach this goal?

STAGE TWO: If we can exceed our initial target by a significant amount then we a hope also to stage our long-planned for concert of works for string orchestra, including the first full performance of Moya Henderson’s The Dreaming, first performance in decades of Helen Gifford’s Phantasma alongside masterpieces by Richard Meale-Homage to Garcia Lorca and Harrison Birstwistle’s Endless Parade

An investment in Arcko is an investment in Australia’s musical heritage past, present and future. Thank you for your support.

“a gift to local composers” (The Age), the Arcko Symphonic Ensemble is Australia’s premier new music orchestra focussing on large scale, overwhelmingly Australian repertoire from the 20th & 21st Century.

Breathing life into forgotten or neglected works Arcko is creating a musical link between past heritage composers and the present day and playing a vital role in the creation of an Australian musical canon through fearless programming, re-performance of works, a small commissioning program and the release on CD of previously unrecorded Australian works.

Described variously as “Genuine Champions of New Music” or “Stars of the New Music world” Arcko assumes a unique and vital role in Australia’s cultural landscape and lives by the motto that Australians should be the primary presenters and consumers of their own cultural goods.
