The ACO is renowned for embracing celebrated classics alongside new commissions and Serenades for Strings is no exception.

A romantic program of the finest classical music from Beethoven to Mendelssohn mixed with an exciting new Australian work; composer Paul Stanhope’s Dancing on Clouds from the Hush 18 Collective Wisdom album.

Helena Rathbone, Principal Violin and founding Director of ACO Collective, celebrates her 25th year with the ACO and leads a magical night that will take you from Edward Elgar’s tranquil Serenade for Strings to Beethoven’s delightful and optimistic Romance for violin and orchestra.
