The AMEB Online Orchestra is back! 

Performers from all over Australia and beyond are invited to play their part and become a member of AMEB’s community orchestra project.

The 2021 AMEB Online Orchestra is open to any individual, duo, chamber ensemble, band, choir or orchestra of any ability.  We ask our performers to film themselves performing the song in their special part of the world whether it be their home, a local park, a famous landmark, out in the bush or in a school classroom.  We will then weave all the performances into one big online performance.

We hope you can join us!

Morning Star and Evening Star

The 2021 orchestra will perform a new song commissioned by AMEB called ‘Morning Star and Evening Star’ written by Candace Kruger, a Yugambeh yarrabilgingun (songwoman) and indigenous ethnomusicologist from South-Eastern Queensland, along with co-writers Lann Levinge and Isobella Kruger. The song is based on an Aboriginal lullaby sung to Lottie Eaton (nee Levinge), who then shared it with her family members including Candace and Lann.

We are very excited to launch this brilliant song into the world and can’t wait to hear our Online Orchestra performers playing it.

  • I have spent loads of money and bought almost half page of the top themes in this place , none of like this one! Instant help no question asked. That's what I call top theme quality. It's all about service, especially when the theme is amazingly designed, too highly recommend.

  • We are honoured to have the opportunity to bring this Australian narrative to life. We have enjoyed working with Candace and her community immensely and we thank the Elders of the Yugambeh region for their permission to use the song. We now look forward to sharing the rediscovered story of Morning Star and Evening Star with people around the country.
