The Australian Chamber Orchestra’s concert in the evening of Monday 7th November 2016 at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre concert hall in Brisbane was a treat.

I have been to see the ACO several times but this concert brought their performance to new heights. It was a great blening of the new with the old. Pekka Kuusisto was a great director and the orchestra (all strings) really responded with a cohesive...More

If you have an opportunity to hear the ACO, it will always be enjoyable, usually brilliant, often surprising. They are based in Sydney but, luckily for us, travel.

This was a concert given by the orchestra as a 'thankyou' to an art gallery in Sydney which supports them. The music as always was superb - Vivaldi a perennial favourite. A surprise was the Shostakovich which was quite wonderful. A youthful and very talented...More

Chamber & Classical music isn't for everyone, but if you are in Sydney and you see they are performing, you would be well placed to see them. They generally take Classical music and put a slight twist on it.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
