ACO & Australian Children's Music Foundation

Our partnership with the Australian Children’s Music Foundation (ACMF) brings ACO musicians into some of the most disadvantaged classrooms in Australia. The ACMF delivers weekly music lessons at schools at Soldiers' Settlement Public School in Matraville and Our Lady of Mount Carmel Public School in Waterloo in NSW and three schools in Sunshine in Victoria. Throughout the year ACO musicians visit these schools and give facilitated workshops and concerts for the students. Students in Sydney are also invited to attend ACO open rehearsals at the ACO’s Studio.

With the support of the ACO, and riding on the success of the ACMF Music Program, a group of sixteen children at Soldiers’ Settlement Public School also receive weekly instrumental lessons and take part in string ensemble rehearsals.
