Australian Chamber Orchestra won three Grammy Awards this week, not that anyone noticed because they were all looking over at Lorde.
Australia completely missed out of contemporary Grammy Awards this year although Tame Impala, Haitus Kaiyote and The Greencards were nominated.
The Australian Chamber Orchestra was founded in 1975 by cellist John Painter. The orchestra’s current artist director Richard Tognetti joined the ensemble as Lead Violin in 1989.
The orchestra tours regularly in Asia, Europe and the USA. They have performed at Wigmore Hall, London and Carnegie Hall in New York.
The Australian Chamber Orchestra was the only Australia act to win at thr 56th Grammy Awards.
