We can rehearse at your venue prior to the performance.
This is an open rehearsal, so you and your guests can experience our rehearsal process.
Take as many videos and photos of us during our rehearsal and performance – just share them with us later.
During the Q&A session, invite your guests to ask us the most intimate questions about our profession.
Our only requirements are four armless chairs, adequate reading light and 2.5m x 2.5m of performance space.
For decades, Australia’s leading orchestra have relied on Government and private funding to survive. Ticket sales alone have never been sufficient to keep them afloat.
Even when concert venues finally reopen, strict measures will be implemented to enforce social distancing. This could result in as much as an 80% reduction in ticket sales.
·Increase ticket prices.
·Increase frequency of concerts and performances.
·Decrease wages and salaries of musicians and staff.
In addition, they will depend on an increase in Government funding and private sponsorship.
Without an increase in funding and reduction in expenses, it is probable that many full-time performing musicians will lose their jobs.
There may only be enough funding and performance opportunities to employ them on a part-time or casual basis. Many musicians may be forced to find whatever work they can.
Most professional musicians begin studying their instrument between the age of 3 and 6 years old.
Over their lifetime, they invest tens of thousands of hours in practice, study and performance, not to mention hundreds of thousands of dollars in study and on their instruments.
By hiring our musicians and string quartets, you are directly supporting us and the Arts.
