About

AUSTRALIAN DISCOVERY ORCHESTRA

Principal Conductor: Kevin Purcell

 

Australia has extraordinary, professional-level orchestral musicians who, for varied reasons, do not always have adequate opportunity to perform with their peers.  So we’ve decided to change that.

Our first call for players in late 2015 received an overwhelming nationwide response. A new search to add to our already impressive roster to join us in our 2017-18 Season is now open until February 13.  You can apply here.

The Australian Discovery Orchestra is providing 68 exceptional musicians, from all over the country, the opportunity 2 – 3 times per year to come together to perform repertoire combining classic masterworks, lesser-known but important pieces, and the chance to shine a light on inspiring Australian music.
