Under the baton of Founding Artistic Director & Chief Conductor Sarah-Grace Williams,
The Metropolitan Orchestra (TMO) is recognised as one of Australia’s most versatile privately run orchestras delivering consistently vibrant first-class experiences.
A not-for-profit registered musical charity, TMO’s annual season includes a variety of events tailored to different demographics from their highly acclaimed and regularly sold-out Met Concert series, family Cushion Concert series, development programs for composers and performers along with outreach concerts for newly arrived refugees, free concerts, international tours and numerous special events.
An important focus in The Metropolitan Orchestra’s mission is to support Australian artists – orchestral players, composers and soloists. In 2016 TMO launched its inspiring Composer Development Program, unearthing new Australian composers and in 2017 was proud to launch their new TMO Young Artist Program.
The orchestra’s sparkling eight year history includes a star-studded array of performances including concerts with Sumi Jo (Opera House), David Helfgott (City Recital Hall), Elaine Paige (State Theatre), John Farnham with Olivia Newton-John (Entertainment Centre and Tempus Two), James Morrison (The Concourse), Kate Ceberano (Opera House); special events such as BBC’s Blue Planet and Planet Earth in Concert (Opera House), Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular (Opera House and Entertainment Centre), Opera in the Vineyards (Wyndham Estate and Roche Estate), the National Rugby League Grand Final and sailing the South Pacific annually as resident orchestra aboard the Bravo! Cruise of the Performing Arts with internationally renowned artists José Carreras, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Anthony Warlow, Teddy Tahu Rhodes, David Hobson, Marina Prior, Simon Tedeschi, Cheryl Barker, the Grigoryan Brothers and more.
