The Victorian Community Orchestra Project introduces Australian composers and arrangers to Victorian community orchestras to create new works for community orchestras.
To celebrate this collaboration, the Gala Concert will bring together nine community orchestras from across Victoria to premiere their new works at the Malvern Town Hall in a celebration of new community music. The concert will be recorded and broadcast by 3MBS, and composers and arrangers will receive professional development advice from our adjudicator, Brenton Broadstock AM.
Following the concert, all new works will be available to other community orchestras to perform in their future concert programs. Your donation will assist us with venue hire, adjudicator fees, travel expenses, and catering for our army of volunteers needed to help run a nine orchestra concert. We will also be creating a library of new works for any community orchestra to explore, learn, develop and perform Australian compositions.
More information including which orchestras are involved, the countdown and sponsorship opportunities can be found at our website: vcoproject.org
And come and hear and support nine community orchestras perform new Australian compositions and arrangements at the Gala Concert at Malvern Town Hall on 24 August 2019.
