Our partnership with Gondwana Choirs and Djarragun College enables Indigenous children in the greater Cairns region to collaborate with the ACO.

In 2015, young people from the Cairns Gondwana Indigenous Children’s Choir were introduced to the ACO by attending an exhibition of ACO Virtual at the Tanks Arts Centre in Cairns. In 2016, the ACO Inspire Quartet travelled to Cairns to participate in the Cairns Gondwana Indigenous Children's Choir weekend music camp. The musicians presented an interactive concert introducing the choir members to the instruments of a string quartet before collaborating with them to create compositions and then performing a free community performance for family and friends.
