ACO Scores Half A Century Of Tours With Latest Successes In Europe

The Australian Chamber Orchestra has wrapped up a hugely successful and comprehensive tour of Europe with a private recital for Prince Charles and 150 invited guests at St James’ Palace.

During the tour, the ACO performed in Birmingham, London, at Vienna’s Musikverein, and Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, in Antwerp,  Wilhelmshaven, Luxembourg and Basel. This brings up their half century for the number of tours undertaken to 36 countries and 222 cities.

Margaret Throsby has been touring with the orchestra and will present the broadcasts of the concerts (see separate post with dates of broadcasts).
