Musica da Camera


Musica da Camera

Musica da Camera usually presents three programs of string music per year.  Generally, each program is presented twice, with a concert in Canberra and a concert in a nearby regional community. We also prepare some programs for special events.

Musica da Camera plays music from the string orchesta repertoire, from Baroque to Contemporary, sometimes with soloists. The orchestra engages a different conductor for each program, providing diversity of style and content.

Next Concert: 15 April, 2018.

Program will be directed by Barbara Gilby

1:30pm Sun, 15 Apr, 2018   High Court, Canberra.
