James McCusker Orchestra
30 Elouera Street,
Braddon ACT 2612
Named after one of the original founding members of Canberra Youth Music, passionate musician James ‘Jim’ McCusker, the James McCusker Orchestra (JMO) is our second orchestra in the performance pathway.
Through its rehearsal and performance of selectively curated repertoire, the James McCusker Orchestra provides an ideal environment for young players to gain exposure to the fundamentals of orchestral ensemble playing.
The James McCusker Orchestra works towards regular performances at venues and community events including at Llewellyn Hall, Floriade, the National Eisteddfod, and festivals in the ACT and wider region.
The approximate standard of JMO is AMEB 5-7 or equivalent. Participants of the James McCusker Orchestra are expected to be taking additional individual instrumental tuition in addition to the orchestra.
