Have you ever wanted to play or sing with an orchestra?
Want to be part of something big?
We invite you to take part in the AMEB Online Orchestra - a collaborative orchestra made up of Australians playing from wherever they are around the country.
Individuals, schools and community groups will record their part to Waltzing Matilda and each video will contribute towards a final video presentation of the work.
The final video performance will be released later in the year with a launch presentation on the big screen at Federation Square in Melbourne on Wednesday 12 September.
Our Project Ambassadors, Benjamin Northey and Ambre Hammond will be joining us for this Australian first - The AMEB Online Orchestra.
Benjamin Northey began his musical career by sitting various AMEB exams and has gone on to be a conductor of world renown as well as a champion for music education. He is currently the Associate Conductor of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and the Chief Conductor of the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra. Ben is pleased to support AMEB’s Online Orchestra and will feature in the video and at the Launch event in September.
Ambre Hammond is a true product of AMEB. At age 11 she completed both her AMusA and LMusA in piano in one year. Now she performs regularly as a concert pianist all around Australia and the world. She is passionate about children having access to music and through her project - Girl Piano Truck - she has travelled with a piano to rural villages in Africa, Thailand and India delighting children and adults alike. Ambre will feature in the AMEB Online Orchestra video and will perform live at the Federation Square launch event.
The AMEB Online Orchestra is for everyone. No matter where you are or what your level of playing, we welcome your video contribution.
All you need to do is download the music, record your video and then upload it using the form on the next page.
