PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

AWO ACADEMY
The AWO Academy offers young players a one-time place in the orchestra for a fully immersive touring orchestra experience – an invaluable opportunity for emerging musicians.

Academy players attend rehearsals; are mentored by an AWO professional player; travel and tour with the orchestra; and perform during the concert season.

AWO Academy Scholarship – in development. Future AWO plans include the development of an Academy Scholarship, for which a young musician is provided funds to travel and study overseas or interstate to further their musical education.
