As well as professional performances, there will be multiple opportunities to engage in community workshops and have hands-on experiences with ORC programs.

Director, Donna Riles said ‘In 2023, ORC will continue to highlight the fabulous music performed by students in solo and ensemble settings and initiate innovative music education and experiences for all.’

Musica Viva Australia have partnered with ORC to present 3 very different and applauded Australian chamber groups, Ensemble Q, AVÉ -Australian Vocal Ensemble and Bandaluzia. All bring a unique and Australian focussed program.
Innovative musicians, Claire Edwards and Blaire Harris from Ensemble Offspring bring to Orange, an intimate show Echoes and Orbits featuring fresh music composed for percussion and cello.

Orange’s local professionals will present a four-concert chamber music series exploring music from The Americas, North to South. This year, ORC is very excited to be partnering with SeeSaw wines. A glass of SeeSaw wine will be provided on arrival at these chamber music concerts. We are looking forward to this partnership and pairing beautiful music with outstanding locally produced wine throughout 2023.

Management committee chair, Pam Ryan writes, ‘The excitement of 2023 is palpable. ORC has weathered the challenges of recent years, emerging in a strong position to expand education provisions, offer varied and high-quality performances, and launch into a major fundraising campaign. That we face the next twelve months with optimism is due to the tireless work of our wonderful staff, our ORC members, and our strong community partnerships.’
