Last Updated: 11/11/2020

As we all struggle to come to terms with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the wellbeing of you, our audience, along with our staff and musicians remains of utmost importance to the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra.

We all need to adhere to the advice from the National Cabinet and be actively helping to slow the spread of this devastating virus, and with our performance venues extending their closure, we have had to make several difficult decisions.

It is with heavy hearts that we sadly advise we must cancel our performance plans for the following concert series:

  • Series 3 - Bach’s Violin, 16 - 31 July 2020
  • Series 4 - Notre-Dame, 2 - 19 September 2020
  • Series 5 - Ottoman Baroque22 October - 6 November 2020
  • Series 6Noël! Noël!5 December 2020 at Melbourne Recital Centre

Our Box Office is currently fielding a large volume of calls, and we appreciate your patience at this time. If you need to contact our Box Office, please do so by emailing or leave a message on our answering machine by calling 1300 782 856 and we will return your call as soon as possible.

These uncertain times will have a significant and long-term impact on our live performance industry, and we stand together with our arts community in this time of crisis.

Rest assured, our wonderful and talented musicians are busy working on new and exciting performances for you to watch on our new digital platform Brandenburg One. In the coming weeks we also look forward to announcing a Noël! Noël! digital première event - make sure you follow us on Facebook and Instagram for the latest updates.

Please find below a special video message from Australian Brandenburg Orchestra's Patron, Her Excellency the Honourable Margaret Beazley AC QC, Governor of New South Wales.

We do want you to know that we are committed to ensuring the longevity and sustainability of the Brandenburg, and we thank you for your patience, understanding and outstanding support during this time.

Please continue to take great care, with warmest wishes

Paul Dyer AO, Artistic Director
Bruce Applebaum, Managing Director
