ACO Collective - Serenades for Strings

CPAC Theatre

On sale now

The ACO is renowned for embracing celebrated classics alongside new commissions and Serenades for Strings is no exception. A romantic program of the finest classical music from Beethoven to Mendelssohn mixed with an exciting new Australian work, Australian composer Paul Stanhope’s Dancing on Clouds from the Hush 18 Collective Wisdom Album.

Helena Rathbone, Principal Violin and founding Director of ACO Collective, celebrates her 25th year with the ACO and will lead you in a magical night that takes you from Edward Elgar’s tranquil Serenade for Strings to Beethoven’s delightful and optimistic Romance for violin and orchestra. Helena proves she is a romantic at heart and you will experience the youthful and energetic Sinfonia No.7 by Mendelssohn and end the night with Beethoven’s great String Quartet as the finale that brings the night to a gripping end!

ACO Collective combines Australia’s most talented emerging string players with the professional musicians of the ACO to create a high-energy 17-piece string orchestra.

ACO Collective will be joined by the Cairns Gondwana Indigenous Children's Choir who will be performing a newly commissioned work.

The Family Concert at 11am is a shorter, more relaxed performance. Suitable for young and old.
