Join the AMEB Online Orchestra on Make Music Day
Performers from all over Australia and beyond are invited to play their part and become a member of AMEB’s community orchestra project.
The 2021 AMEB Online Orchestra is open to any individual, duo, chamber ensemble, band, choir or orchestra of any ability. We ask our performers to film themselves performing the song in their special part of the world whether it be their home, a local park, a famous landmark, out in the bush or in a school classroom. We will then weave all the performances into one big online performance.
The 2021 orchestra will perform a new song commissioned by AMEB called ‘Morning Star and Evening Star’ written by Candace Kruger, a Yugambeh yarrabilgingun (songwoman) and indigenous ethnomusicologist from South-Eastern Queensland, along with co-writers Lann Levinge and Isobella Kruger. The song is based on an Aboriginal lullaby sung to Lottie Eaton (nee Levinge), who then shared it with her family members including Candace and Lann.
