ASO and ACO win music awards

At the recent Art Music Awards, Brett Dean took out the Orchestral Work of the Year for Fire Music, performed by the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. The ASO also won the South Australian state award for Excellence in Music Education, in conjunction with the OzAsia Festival for its creative workshops with Tan Dun.

The Australian Chamber Orchestra took out the Western Australian state award for Excellence in a Regional Area, in conjunction with Tura New Music for The Reef Tour 2012.

The Art Music Awards are presented each year by the Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA) and the Australian Music Centre to recognise achievement in the composition, performance, education and presentation of Australian music.

Great to see the major companies acknowledged for innovation and new works.
