Fusing digital technologies with visual and sonic innovation, this ground-breaking interactive installation allows you to conduct and even play with the ACO.

Imagine standing on stage surrounded by the Australian Chamber Orchestra’s virtuoso musicians, feeling the energy of Artistic Director Richard Tognetti playing his priceless Guarneri del Gesù violin or getting up close to Principal Violinist Satu Vänskä’s Stradivarius.

Cutting edge audio-visual installation ACO Virtual takes you there.

  • See how fast the musician's fingers move;
  • Hear the sounds of each instrument whirl around you;
  • Experience what the cellos sound like on their own, or the violas – or even just the double bass;
  • Follow along with the projected musical score;
  • Bring your own instrument and play along with the installation;
  • Take the helm of the ‘greatest chamber orchestra on earth’ and stand in for Richard Tognetti himself.

Don’t miss this extraordinary new way to experience music.

ACO Virtual was produced by the Australian Chamber Orchestra and Mod Productions.
