Established and designed by the Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra’s Founding Artistic Director and world-renowned educator Richard Gill AO, the VOYAGE OF MUSICAL DISCOVERY is three separate events – in March, May and August 2020 – beginning at 6.30pm on a weekday. Each program is equal parts concert and demonstration. The orchestra’s Co-Artistic Directors, Rachael Beesley and Nicole van Bruggen present each VOYAGE with musicians of the AUSTRALIAN ROMANTIC & CLASSICAL ORCHESTRA in the first half, and a contemporary guest artist or ensemble is featured in the second half.

By placing Australian music written in the last 25 years alongside earlier Classical and Romantic works, listeners are shown the many compositional links and similarities in structure, tonality, rhythmic function, orchestration and modes of expression.
