Australian Chamber Orchestra: Embark on European Tour, Start Blogging

img  Tobias
For anyone interested in following the Australian Chamber Orchestra’s progress on their way through Europe, the ensemble invites fans and foes alike to their freshly founded blog. Instead of just serving as another addendum to their excellent website, it has been intended as a platform for all of its members to vent their opinions and share their thoughts on topics ranging from “the famous, prolific, ethically dubious and undeniably brilliant conductor” that was Herbert von Karajan to (hear, hear!) Radiohead’s social network “W.A.S.T.E. CENTRAL”. One of the recent posts called “IN THE (NEW MUSIC) GHETTO”, which dealt with the dangers of outsourcing contemporary composition from classical programs into their own small-scale festivals, has already sparked a swift reply from the Sydney Symphony.

If you want to catch the Australian Chamber Orchestra on one of their recent live dates, here is the complete schedule for their European tour:
