Camerata’s Artistic Associates and their guests proudly take full ownership of their music-making in the spirit of chamber music to form a thriving, refreshing and acclaimed voice to empower artists, inspire audiences, and enrich communities through music. Under Artistic Director Brendan Joyce, the group undertakes an annual regional Queensland tour and a subscription concert season in both Brisbane and Toowoomba.
As Artistic Associates, players contribute to the strategic direction of Camerata, are integral to the process of programming the season of works, and provide performance and training opportunities for the next generation of Queensland artists through the Upbeat program.
With a reputation for innovation and interesting and adventurous programming, the ensemble is extremely flexible in its repertoire and thrives in collaborations with artists from all art forms.
In 2019 Camerata employed over 80 artists across 35 projects, reaching an audience of 50,000. Camerata is committed to enriching Queensland communities through music with an annual regional tour including the commissioning of a new Australian work, public performances, education engagements and workshops with local schools and visits to residents in aged care facilities.
