We are doctors and lawyers, we are tradies and bus drivers, teachers and farmers, we are the music community of Victoria.
Our goal is to bring together all community musicians of Victoria to celebrate community music with new Australian compositions.
We are a young start up, and are excited to make this concert a bi-yearly event.
A composer’s competition with prize money for the best original composition and best arrangement of a major work for community orchestra, adjudicated at the Gala Concert.
CONNECT AUSTRALIAN COMPOSERS WITH VICTORIAN COMMUNITY ORCHESTRAS
We will introduce community orchestras to composers to write original works for specific community orchestras and/or arrangements of major works. We encourage a collaborative approach to bring this new music to life.
COMMUNITY ORCHESTRA GALA CONCERT
To celebrate all your hard work, all the community orchestras will be invited to perform their new works and arrangements and the winners will receive prize money.
ENCOURAGE COMMUNITY ORCHESTRAS TO INCLUDE AUSTRALIAN COMPOSITIONS IN THEIR CONCERTS
Come and hear the new compositions and arrangements for your orchestra at the community competition gala concert. All works will be available from the VCOP music library for a small fee so you can include a new work in the future concert programs.
We need donations to bring this concert to life, to pay for the hiring of the concert hall, marketing, and possibly prize money for our local composers.
