ACO Collective


Helena Rathbone, Principal Violin and founding Director of ACO Collective, celebrates her 25th year with the ACO and will lead you in a magical night that takes you from Edward Elgar’s tranquil Serenade for Strings to Beethoven’s delightful and optimistic Romance for violin and orchestra. Helena proves she is a romantic at heart and you will experience the youthful and energetic Sinfonia No.7 by Mendelssohn and end the night with Beethoven’s great String Quartet as the finale that brings the night to a gripping end!

 ACO Collective combines Australia’s most talented emerging string players with the professional musicians of the ACO to create a high-energy 17-piece string orchestra.
