Australian Chamber Orchestra

Acclaimed as one of the world’s greatest small orchestras, the Australian Chamber Orchestra has built an international reputation for its artistic excellence and adventurous programming. Founded in 1975, it is Australia’s most internationally travelled arts organisation, with the largest audience subscription base of any chamber orchestra in the world. Under the inspired leadership of violinist Richard Tognetti the ACO has worked with celebrated soloists such as Stephen Hough, Lorraine Hunt, Steven Isserlis, Yvonne Kenny, Robert Levin, Christian Lindberg, Barry Tuckwell, John Williams and Pieter Wispelwey. In addition to its national concert program the ACO regularly tours Asia, Europe and the USA, performing at many of the world’s great concert halls, including Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, New York’s Carnegie Hall, Vienna’s Musicverein and London’s Wigmore Hall.
