ACO in the Highlands - Australian Chamber Orchestra

ACO in the Highlands

Now in its eighth year, ACO in the Highlands took place on Saturday 2 June 2012, at Bowral’s elegant Milton Park Country House. Once again the event, which has become a highlight of the Southern Highlands social calendar, was hosted by Michael and Daria Ball and attended by local, interstate and international guests, among them The Hon Pru Goward MP. The highlight of the evening was of course an outstanding performance by the ACO, before guests bid on an array of exquisite auction items.

The following morning Michael and Susie Yabsley generously welcomed guests to their home, Wombat Hollow, for a delicious champagne brunch. Guests were then treated to a private Masterclass during which ACO violinist Madeleine Boud mentored three local music students. Madeleine is a wonderful teacher and guests were thrilled to be given an insight into the behind the scenes creative process.

The whole weekend was a wonderful success, raising over $130,000 in support of the ACO’s Education Program.

The ACO would like to thank Michael and Daria Ball, Michael and Susie Yabsley and the Southern Highlands Event Committee for all their support
