ACO Academy

ACO Academy

ACO Academy is an immersive learning experience, essential for any talented young string player who wants to be challenged and inspired.

Led by ACO violinist Aiko Goto, this annual program brings high school string players from across Australia together for an intensive week of orchestral rehearsals, sectionals and chamber music sessions. Throughout the week participants will be coached and mentored by ACO musicians and will build on technical skills, accuracy, ensemble playing, leading and communicating, and performance style. The week culminates in a public performance on the main stage as part of the ACO Academy Orchestra.
