PERFORMANCE CANCELLATION DUE TO 2020 COVID-19 Crisis
Due to the world-wide COVID-19 Crisis the AO’s 2nd concert of 2020, which was scheduled to occur on July 26 and feature Brahms’ Symphony No. 1, has sadly been cancelled. We hope AO will return in 2021 for more wonderful music making.
Based in Melbourne, the Australasian Orchestra is a select symphony orchestra dedicated to performing major works from the classical repertoire, as well as new and exciting compositions from Australian and overseas composers. A notable feature of the orchestra's concerts has been the inclusion of world premieres of original and commissioned works in its concert seasons. Under the baton of Chief Conductor and Artistic Director, Robert Dora, the orchestra’s exciting and innovative programming brings a special musical experience to instrumentalists and audiences alike. (From 2013 to 2016 the orchestra was known as the Australian & Asian Orchestra Inc.).
