The Australian Chamber Orchestra’s internationally acclaimed ACO Collective will perform Serenades for Strings, an evening of the finest classical music, and a new Australian work, at the Pilbeam Theatre in October.

Led by ACO Principal Violin and founding director of ACO Collective, Helena Rathbone, The ACO is renowned for embracing celebrated classics alongside new commissions.

ACO Collective will perform a magical night that begins with the world premiere of Paul Stanhope’s Dancing on Clouds  and takes you from Edward Elgar’s tranquil Serenade for Strings to Beethoven’s delightful and optimistic Romance for Violin and Orchestra.

Audiences will experience the youthful and energetic Sinfonia No.7 by Mendelssohn and end the night with Beethoven’s great String Quartet as the finale that brings the night to a gripping end.

The Australian Chamber Orchestra lives and breathes music, making waves around the world for their explosive performances and brave interpretations. ACO Collective features members of the ACO alongside musicians from their Emerging Artists Program – young, professional string players at the outset of their careers.

ACO Collective’s Serenades for Strings will be performed at the Pilbeam Theatre on Tuesday 22 October at 7.30pm.

The concert is presented by Rockhampton Regional Council and is part of the 2019 See It Live Theatre Season.
