Meet the Orchestra

We are very fortunate to have the most talented baroque specialists from around Australia playing with our orchestra.

…what stands out at concert after concert is the impression that this bunch of musicians is having a really good time. They look at each other and smile, they laugh…there’s a warmth and sense of fun not often associated with classical performance.
