The MSO has been working closely with the Special Region of Yogyakarta in Indonesia and the Australia-Indonesia Centre (AIC) to strengthen our diplomatic, cultural and artistic relationships. In October 2016, at the invitation of His Majesty and Governor of the Region, Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono X, we delivered our first music camp for 40 Indonesian students and their teachers.
This fantastic video, produced by the Australia-Indonesia Centre, highlights the value of these artistic exchanges, and the opportunities for innovation that arise from working with our partners.
As the first Australian orchestra to present a music camp of this nature in the region, the MSO is continuing to develop further engagement strategies that build our cross-cultural connections. We hope to return to Yogyakarta in August 2017 to be the first western orchestra to perform at the Prambanan Temple.
