AMEB Online Orchestra

Posted by Team APATA | May 27, 2021

Entries for the AMEB Online Orchestra are open until July 31.

Performers from all over Australia and beyond are invited to play their part and become a member of AMEB’s community orchestra project.

The 2021 AMEB Online Orchestra is open to any individual, duo, chamber ensemble, band, choir or orchestra of any ability.  

Performers are asked to film themselves performing the song in their special part of the world whether it be their home, a local park, a famous landmark, out in the bush or in a school classroom.  AMEB will then be tasked with weaving all the performances into one big online production.

We were grateful to interview Yugambeh yarrabilgingun (Songwoman) and indigenous ethnomusicologist Candace Kruger last year. Along with family members, Lann Levinge and Isobella Kruger, Candace composed the AMEB Online Orchestra song ‘Morning Star and Evening Star.’

 Listen to Candace Kruger’s APATA Podcast Episode here.

Performers are sending in their entries and we encourage our educators and their students to get involved. A great way to acknowledge Reconciliation week and the language songlines of Australia’s First People no matter where you are ‘on country’ or around the world.

To get involved, register and download your score and pronunciation guide at the AMEB Online Orchestra webpage HERE.
