Momentum Ensemble
Powered by the Australian Youth Orchestra

Meet Momentum Ensemble, a group of dynamic orchestral performers powered by the Australian Youth Orchestra. The program acts as a springboard for exceptional young musicians who want to develop a multi-faceted career in music. The aim of these musicians is to democratize Classical music, bringing new interpretations and unconventional works to audiences, and performing in venues that transcend the boundaries of the traditional recital hall.

Momentum Ensemble emerged out of a desire to fill a vocational and training gap for young musicians who are at the cusp of their professional careers. Members of the ensemble will gain teaching skills, access professional development opportunities, and develop skills that will assist them in launching a career as a versatile artist of the 21st century.

This project has been made possible with the generous support of the Australian Government; our Principal Sponsor and Digital Partner, Accenture; and the Graeme Wood Foundation.
