The Arts Centre Gold Coast presents
ACO VIRTUAL After Dark
Enlightening and enriching experiences Thursdays 6.00pm-8.00pm during ACO VIRTUAL
Have you ever wanted to play with the Australian Chamber Orchestra? Here’s your chance!
As part of the ACO VIRTUAL After Dark program, join us for a Classic Jam session where musicians will come together within the walls of Gold Coast City Gallery to experience the ACO VIRTUAL installation.
ACO VIRTUAL is a cutting-edge audio-visual installation that puts you in the middle of the Australian Chamber Orchestra’s live performance. Projections of thirteen musicians surround you on all sides, with the sound of each player coming from the direction of their projection. It’s like standing in the middle of the orchestra during a concert.
Bring your instrument and play along to Bach, Grieg, Smalley or Piazzolla. You can choose to learn a piece and perform as one of the musicians, or bring your imagination and indulge in some inspirational improvisation.
Don’t play a string instrument? That’s OK! Get creative and try transposing one of the pieces to your guitar, flute or clarinet.
Don’t play an instrument at all? That’s OK too! Come and be part of the audience and enjoy an evening of music.
To register your interest in playing, email Kaitlin Bell, firstname.lastname@example.org
