Your orchestra has hit the ground running in 2022. If you’ve joined us in the concert hall this year, I hope you’ve experienced music that delighted you, warmed your heart or opened up a new perspective – perhaps all of the above!
If you’re new to the CSO, I encourage you to get along to one (or both) of our upcoming Australian Series concerts, in the spacious atrium of the National Museum of Australia. These shorter, ever fascinating programs showcase our players in small ensembles, performing a rich selection of evocative Australian works.
The next instalment, titled Collective Memory (28 July), explores the immense footprint of culture: how we know and relate to the people around us and the landscapes we inhabit. This program, full of personal narratives and compelling collective histories, culminates in a new CSO commission for Rhyan Clapham, a brilliant young Filipino and Murrawarri musician, DJ and academic.
