“Briger’s vision to bring the best Australian talent together is a wonderful reminder of our enormous artistic wealth and should be a source of hope and pride for many years to come.”

Limelight Magazine, 2019

We had a dream of bringing together Australia’s finest musicians to create the Australian World Orchestra, performing under the great conductors of our time such as – Zubin Mehta, Sir Simon Rattle and Riccardo Muti.

The support of our donors made this dream a reality, and together we have changed the Australian musical landscape. Our shared vision has allowed us to commission Australian composers, educate the next generation and create an orchestra that is considered by many as Top 10 in the world.

Do you realise what you’ve got here? Don’t let it go!

Maestro Zubin Mehta

Our vision for the future is inspiring, with the commission of a symphony debuting in 2021 and bringing you another 2 of the world’s top 10 conductors, who can’t wait to discover Australia. However, to enable us to fulfill our vision for the enjoyment of audiences across the country and around the world, and for the educational benefit of the next generation, we need continued support and we invite you to be part of the magic by becoming part of the AWO family.

“…I’m not being a polite guest when I say that this orchestra is one of the great orchestras in the world. I mean it, so please look after it and tell everybody else to help you look after it.”

Sir Simon Rattle
