Orchestra Victoria has a long commitment to regional Victoria, and for over 16 years has presented its On the mOVe! student and professional development workshops in regional and outer metropolitan centres across the state. The orchestra is also committed to assisting young musicians with career pathways, sharing its expertise through its Richard Bonynge Orchestral Fellowship and newly developed digital programs.
Mock Audition Program (MAP)
As part of our digital festival MOVeable Feast, we have created a Mock Audition Program. This is a totally interactive initiative, designed to give emerging early-career classical artists the opportunity to prepare an audition and work through feedback with musicians of Orchestra Victoria at no cost!
