ACO2 the Australian Chamber Orchestra's precocious little sister, delivers the ACO's regional touring and education programs.

ACO2 connects the next generation of talented young Australian musicians with the stars of the ACO, creating a combined ensemble with a fresh, energetic performance style. Guest stars have included Tim Freedman from The Whitlams, oud player Joseph Tawadros, accordionist James Crabb, recorder virtuoso Genevieve Lacey and violinists Pekka Kuusisto (Finland), Lara St John (Canada) and Thomas Gould (UK).

This concert is led by the ACO’s Zoë Black on violin and features harpist Alice Giles “assured, communicative performer and an astute program-builder...there were exquisite details.” (New York Times).
