We are the raw orchestra of Melbourne.
We play the classics with a contemporary edge.
We nurture young players.
You won’t hear us play in a concert hall.
You won’t see us play in tails.
You will hear us play with our souls.
You will see us move with emotion.
Clap when you like.
Photograph and share if you love it. 
Because music is made to be shared and felt.
