ACO Underground

ACO Underground

The celebrated ACO Underground returns, bringing with it an electrifying evening of shape-shifting music.

The Australian Chamber Orchestra makes waves around the world for explosive performances and adventurous cross-artform collaborations. This year, its celebrated ACO Underground program returns, with frontwoman Satu Vänskä leading a stellar lineup of musicians, including ACO Artistic Director Richard Tognetti, Slava Grigoryan and the Violent Femmes' Brian Ritchie, through a shape-shifting evening of music.

Expect film-noir re-imaginings of Bach, Bryce Dessner, Nick Drake, and Nine Inch Nails, alongside Tognetti's music for Mountain and Reef. Intimate, adventurous and electrifying, this is a whole new way to experience the ACO.
