Hobart Chamber Orchestra

Now in its 26th year, the Hobart Chamber Orchestra has established itself as a high quality ensemble with a reputation of initiative and courage to try new works, enduring relationships and collaborations, and the fostering of new talent.  Membership of the HCO is drawn from retired, current and semi-professional musicians, Conservatorium students, and experienced amateurs.

Former conductors include Myer Fredman, Jean-Louis Forestier, the late Christopher Martin, Phillip Taylor, and Joseph Ortuso. The orchestra regularly performs under the direction of local conductors Gary Wain, Greg Stephens and virtuoso violinist, Peter Tanfield.  Repertoire is drawn from the core classical string and symphonic orchestral canon, music of Australian and Hobart-based composers, less known contemporary orchestral music, and choral works.

The Orchestra has premiered works in Australia and regularly features outstanding soloists.  Highlights in the last few years have included presentation of the Brandenburg Concerti of J S Bach, Carl Rutti’s Requiem with the Loose Canon Chamber Singers, a ‘Sounds Tasmanian’ concert and Bach’s St Matthew Passion under the direction of Peter Tanfield.  The Orchestra generally presents four or five concerts per year at various Hobart venues.
