Camerata – Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra, has established itself as a chamber orchestra of national significance with an outstanding track record of artistic achievement. A Company-in-Residence at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC), Camerata’s vision is to empower artists, inspire audiences, and enrich communities through music.
Performing without a conductor, the 18-member core ensemble and their guest artists proudly take full ownership of the music-making in the spirit of chamber music to form a thriving, refreshing and acclaimed voice. Under Artistic Director Brendan Joyce, the group undertakes an annual regional Queensland tour and a subscription concert season in both Brisbane and Toowoomba.
Camerata has a reputation for innovation and interesting and adventurous programming. Camerata regularly works with performers outside the 'classical' sector and in 2016 was nominated for a Helpmann Award for Best Chamber and/or Instrumental Ensemble Concert for its performance of Home featuring an all-Australian music program. In 2017 Camerata performed 50 concerts across Queensland and New South Wales to an audience of 36,000.
