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 has just been announced. Applications are now open.
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.
Recognising a “both/and” mindset – as opposed to the more common “either/or” approach to orchestral programming – we have cast aside all notions of highbrow and lowbrow music. The ADO’s concert programs will never distinguish between the music of Bernstein and Bruno Mars, Ravel and Radiohead, or even Sibelius and Sting. We simply perform great orchestral music across all genres – and often in the same concert!
