Sydney Conservatorium of Music Chamber Orchestra European Tour

The orchestra, made of eight postgraduates and 26 undergraduates and led by Maestro Imre Pallo, will perform a repertoire of Mozart, Mills and Beethoven, as well as support soloists from European partner institutions - Royal Northern College (Manchester, UK), Conservatoire de Lausanne (Switzerland), Conservatorio N. Paganini (Genoa, Italy), Universitat Mozarteum Salzburg (Austria) and Konservatorium Wien Privatuniversitat (Vienna, Austria).

The last overseas excursion was in 2003 when the orchestra went to New Caledonia for a sell-out, five concert tour.

The orchestra was established in the 1970s. Since 2004 it has worked under the baton of Nicholas Braithwaite, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Charles Dutoit and the Conservatorium's current Chair of Conducting, Professor Pallo.

Over the years members of this ensemble have gone on to positions in a range of international orchestras, including the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Danish Orchestra and Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.
