The AMEB Online Orchestra perform 'I am Australian'

1 November 2019


Thank you to the 1240 talented musicians who performed I am Australian in the 2019 AMEB Online Orchestra.

A premiere of the video took place at the Kenneth Myer Auditorium, Ian Potter Southbank Centre, University of Melbourne on Tuesday 22nd October 2019. The event was hosted by conductor and Online Orchestra Ambassador Jessica Gethin and featured performances by Tintern Grammar Junior Choir, Melbourne Girls' College Junior String Ensemble as well as interviews with Isobella Kruger from Yugambeh Youth Choir and Thanh Bui from Asia Music & Performing Arts Education (AMPA), who organised a choir from Saigon to enter the Online Orchestra. 

We would like to thank our Ambassadors, Jessica Gethin and Bruce Woodley AO; our sponsors, Hal Leonard AustraliaOaklands ProductionsValiant Press; and our event partners Melbourne Conservatorium of Music. Special thanks also goes to the AMEB colleagues and associates who helped make the second Online Orchestra such a success. Without everyone's generous help this project would not have been possible.

The Online Orchestra will be taking a break in 2020 but will be back bigger and better in 2021!
