Your support: Bringing local chamber music to life


Our vision is for a Melbourne-based orchestra that stands with the great chamber orchestras of the world, bringing Victorian artists and audiences together through the power of chamber music.


The orchestra now presents over 50 performances and events each year, thrilling audiences with the best and brightest of Victoria’s chamber musicians The orchestra is recognised for its contributions to Victorian touring and to the development of artists in the early part of their careers.


Your support will help us as we grow towards our ambitions, with more quality performances, extraordinary soloists and the state’s richest year-long professional chamber music program. Donations from individuals comprise around 25% of our budget while government operational support is less than 10%. Each gift makes a difference to our future and the future of Victorian chamber music.

  • $200 supports the costs of one rehearsal for one musician
