Emerge | Haydn, Mozart & Mannheim
Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra is a world-class orchestra of leading Australian musicians who are dedicated to the performance of Classical and Romantic orchestral and chamber music repertoire in historically informed style on period instruments.
The second half of the 18th century was a time of revolution in music. Mozart’s Bassoon Concerto exemplifies this, looking backwards to Vivaldi but written in the emerging sonata form. The revolution was driven by leaps in virtuosity made by musicians of the Mannheim court, and many techniques developed at Mannheim can be heard in Haydn’s ‘Drum Roll’ Symphony and Mozart’s ‘Haffner’ Symphony. One of the world’s finest bassoon players, Jane Gower, performs the concerto.
Doors open 6pm, performance begins 6:30pm

2021 Chamber Music Series
Combining our love of education and performance.
Despite the setbacks of 2020, with the Chamber Series being all but completely canceled, planning has been well underway to make sure it returns in 2021 with new music, themes and performers.
The ORC Chamber Music Series combines performance and education, the musicians visit local schools to demonstrate their instruments, perform selections of works and inspire young minds.
The professional musicians and teachers of the ORC are our greatest asset and invariably this series showcases that fact. As always, there will be music from the greatest composers of all time, exciting modern works and original compositions.
Join us for these relaxed Friday evening concerts, the perfect way to wind down the week.
