The Sydney Contemporary Orchestra (SCO) is dedicated to exploring and promoting new music of contemporary composers.
Based in Sydney Australia and comprised of about 100 of finest orchestral musicians, the SCO hosts concerts for new orchestral compositions regularly providing significant incentives for composers to pursue creative endeavours in new music and to enrich the music culture of our times.
The SCO assists composers by promoting them and their works in various ways:
