A night of classical music like you’ve never experienced before

Don’t miss this extraordinary evening with Richard Tognetti and the Australian Chamber Orchestra. On Monday 21 August the ACO will perform for the first time at the beautiful St Kilda Synagogue, to raise funds for the Jewish Museum of Australia, Gandel Centre of Judaica. All ticket income will go to support the Jewish Museum.

Violinist, conductor, and composer Richard Tognetti will lead a breathtaking performance, featuring his famous ‘The Lark Ascending’ by Vaughan Williams and beloved works by Mendelssohn and Ravel. The ACO is one of the world’s most lauded chamber ensembles, renowned for its inspired programming and unrivalled virtuosity, energy, and individuality.

String workshop for young musicians

As part of the ACO’s special performance at the St Kilda Synagogue, eight talented young musicians will have the unique opportunity to apply to participate in a String Workshop and perform alongside professional musicians from the world-renowned ACO. For one afternoon, the lucky group will become part of the ACO, learning rehearsal and performance techniques, and preparing for a performance with the ACO at the evening concert. Only Museum members (children or grandchildren) will be given the opportunity to apply.
