Posted on 17 May 2012 by L2 Interactive

In three weeks touring Northern NSW, Queensland and the Northern Territory, ACO2 covered over 5,000km. The orchestra played nine concerts and facilitated six string workshops and an open rehearsal for primary school students, ending with a sold out concert in Darwin. The tour included:

A. Port Macquarie
B. Grafton
C. Redland
D. Nambour
E. Gladstone
F. Rockhampton
G. Mackay
H. Cairns

“ACO2 have certainly inspired a young boy in our region. You have left a lovely legacy as Todd was starting to struggle a bit with his violin lessons, some peer group pressure was getting to Todd as violin wasn’t trendy with his peers. Now thanks to ACO2 he is re-invigorated, motivated, and ready to follow his passion again.” Mark Fawcett, Mackay Entertainment Centre.”

“We have had great feedback from our community about ACO2 and it was such a joy to see our patrons connecting with fine music. This is a genre we have struggled with in the past and it was fantastic to see so many people of all ages attending and enjoying ACO2. Performances such as the one experienced in Port Macquarie go a long way to helping break down the perceived ‘cultural’ barriers in regional communities and I cannot praise your team enough for the quality of the work but also the joy with which it was presented.” Belinda Gibson, Glass House (Port Macquarie)
