Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra with flautist Jane Rutter embark on a Voyage of Musical Discovery, a concert series in which exceptional guest musicians join the orchestra to reveal some of the similarities between historical and contemporary musical works.
Jane Rutter and her Third Culture World Music Ensemble along with ARCO will illustrate in music, the many surprising cultural and historical links between the early classical symphony and the world music of today.
The concert is a popular and enduring part of the legacy of the orchestra’s legendary founder, the late Richard Gill OAM. Aimed at both students of music and music lovers, the Voyage series includes detailed program notes for teachers and students with information about the different ways that Cultural & Historical Contexts influence composition and performance from the early-Classical Mannheim School to Australian contemporary and Chinese music.
