The Orchestra Project returns to the magnificent Verbrugghen Hall at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music to perform Mozart Piano Concerto No. 21 in C Major K.467 with acclaimed pianist Stefan Cassamenos, alongside Gustav Mahler’s epic Symphony No. 6 in A Minor.
Once again, musicians of the Sydney Symphony, Melbourne Symphony, Queensland Symphony, Adelaide Symphony, Tasmanian Symphony, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Orchestra Victoria and Opera Australia Orchestra, will rehearse and perform alongside pre-eminent emerging artists from the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM), various conservatoriums and the wider Australian music fraternity.
This concert will mark the 21st anniversary of The Orchestra Project and its 33nd event. Established by conductor Fabian Russell in Melbourne in April 2002, it created an advanced national, and mentor-driven, orchestral training program that replicated a professional rehearsal structure at a time when professional and student side-by-side activities were still rare in this country. The Orchestra Project is proud to have been one of the pioneers of this approach to orchestral training in Australia. Thousands of musicians throughout the country have benefitted from its work over the last twenty years.
