As part of the Arts Learning Festival, we’re celebrating the work of Victorian instrumental music teachers by creating the Arts Learning Festival Orchestra.
Teacher musicians from all Victorian schools – Independent, Catholic and government – are invited to perform in the Arts Learning Festival Orchestra concert to be held on Sunday 7 May at 3.00 pm.
This concert, which includes two Australian premieres, will be live streamed to a worldwide audience.

The orchestra will be conducted by the ADO’s New York-based principal conductor Kevin Purcell, one of Australia’s most distinguished conductors and musical directors.
