Access and Inclusion
Expect a heady mix of dangerous realism, experimentation, and dreamy relief when the Australian Chamber Orchestra teams up with contemporary voices and talents.
ACO Underground is a genre-bending musical collaboration fronted by Australian Chamber Orchestra violinist and vocalist Satu Vänskä. Satu is joined by violinist and composer Richard Tognetti, guitarist Slava Grigoryan, a string quartet of musicians from the ACO, alongside producer and keyboardist Paul Beard (Music Director for the likes of Robbie Williams, Lily Allen, Bryan Ferry and Art Garfunkel) who makes his ACO Underground debut.
For their first gig in The Neilson, at the ACO’s new home at Pier 2/3, ACO Underground: Back to Reality features music from Gesualdo’s 16th century Italy through to the American avant-garde of Ruth Crawford-Seeger and brand new songs by Richard Tognetti.
Coming together for the first time since you-know-what, this unique group of multi-talented musicians breathes new life into a distinctive mix of old and new music.
