Our Mission and Objectives

Our Mission
  • - promote new compositional works by Australian and international composers
  • - inspire, train and develop Australian musicians in the performance of contemporary music
  • - promote Sydney as a leading centre for the composition and performance of contemporary orchestral music

Objectives

The Sydney Contemporary Orchestra (SCO) promotes new music by today’s composers from Australia and around the world. 

  • We have a vision of enriching the cultural life of Sydney, and establishing Sydney's reputation as a leading centre for the performance of contemporary music. 
  • We are the only Australian orchestra dedicated solely to performing the music of today's composers. 
  • We engage locally based professional musicians - and we provide our musicians with specialised training and direction in the performance of new contemporary music 
  • We provide Sydney audiences with opportunities to hear live performances of the music of today's composers - opportunities that would not otherwise be available to them. We also educate our audiences by inviting composers to speak to the audiences during our concerts 
  • We support and promote today’s generation of contemporary composers, recognising the importance of their role in creating a musical legacy for our times. We work with both leading established composers - and also with up-and-coming composers who would not otherwise have the opportunity to have their works performed.
