The Sydney Symphony Fellows in Concert

Sydney Symphony Fellowship Program

Each year, exceptional musicians between 18 and 30 years of age are selected through a national audition process to participate in the intensive, year-long program which sees them immersed in the world of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.

Under the guidance of Sydney Symphony Orchestra Principal Viola and Fellowship Artistic Director Roger Benedict, the Fellows receive the training and experience they need to secure full-time positions in professional orchestras. Fellows participate in a program of professional performance engagements with the Sydney Symphony, chamber orchestra performances, masterclasses with visiting international artists, involvement in the Sydney Symphony’s Learning and Engagement programs and outreach projects.

Musica Viva’s inaugural FutureMakers (2016/17), Arcadia Winds are making a great career for themselves. Since their ‘graduation’ from this innovative musical leadership program at the end of 2017, this superb group of musicians have released their eponymous debut EP, launched their own Australian composition prize, and are developing a unique online portal for Australian wind music.

“As Arcadia Winds took to the stage…I realised I was about to become part of something very special.” – CutCommon

“Captivating from the moment they took to the stage. Playing with great gusto and passion, these five uber talented musicians…stole the hearts of everyone in the crowd.” – The Adelaide Review

Doctor Stovepipe – Free Family Concert
Oct 24 all-day
Doctor Stovepipe - Free Family Concert @ Orange Regional Conservatorium | Orange | New South Wales | Australia

Gypsy Swing, Ragtime & Hot Jazz

Down a dusty road from the 1930s comes Doctor Stovepipe, a rollicking, old-time ensemble of guitar, bass, fiddle and sweet vocal harmonies. Each appointment is a swinging dose of fun, and a demonstration of how songs evolve and change over time, as they are passed on from one musician to the next. Students learn how the simplest sounds and stories can be turned into toe-tapping tunes and can even write their own lyrics for Doctor Stovepipe to perform in the show.

FREE Family Concert | Time: TBC
