AISOI concerts coming up
Australia’s finest young musicians will converge on Hobart from November 27 to December 11 for the Australian International Symphony Orchestra Institute (AISOI) concert program.
Now in its sixth year, AISOI is acknowledged as one of the most innovative and professionally structured orchestral training programs in the country.
The two weeks of intensive rehearsals, tutorials and concerts are carefully planned to simulate the schedule that would be followed by a professional orchestra.
The tutors, including conductors David Danzmayer, Alexander Briger, Myer Fredman and Fabian Russell, all have distinguished international orchestral careers.
Artistic Director Frank Celata (Sydney Symphony Orchestra) said “ AISOI offers students an important developmental stepping stone in the transition from student to professional orchestral musician.”
AISOI delivers two weeks of intensive learning, culminating in a feast of masterworks from the orchestral repertoire.
The participants will be mentored by some of Australia’s finest orchestral musicians.
Conductor David Danzmayr is welcomed back for the first week of AISOI to conduct and orchestra of 105 musicians, a women’s and children’s chorus of 80 and special guest artist, celebrated mezzo soprano Bernadette Cullen, in Mahler’s monumental and uplifting 3rd Symphony.
Conductor Alexander Briger will conduct the second week with Strauss’ ever popular tone poem Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche, Cat’s Dancing Lesson from Three Miro Pieces by Richard Meale, Brahms’ homage to Beethoven in his first symphony.
New for 2011: AISOI Concerto Competition – a new component of AISOI is being introduced in 2011. This year marks the inaugural Concerto Competition where violinists will have the opportunity to audition as the soloist. The winner will perform Tchaikovsky’s magnificent Violin Concerto in D Major in the second AISOI concert.
