Actually and Somewhere in Time.
The Macao Orchestra
is a professional ensemble organized under the auspices of the Macao Cultural
Affairs Bureau and is the only professional orchestra in Macao. For over 20 years, the Macao
Orchestra has played an important role in the musical life of Macao. Since 1989, the orchestra has
performed every year in the Macao International Music Festival (MIMF) and the Macao
Arts Festival (MAF), gradually becoming the nucleus of these two major cultural
events. Since September 2003, the orchestra has included several Concert Series
every season, presenting both Western and Chinese masterpieces, thereby
encouraging the pursuit of music among the broader public. Through its refined
performance style and high quality concerts, the Macao Orchestra has become a
symbol of Macao’s
prosperity as an international cultural city. The orchestra has worked with
dozens of internationally renowned musicians and conductors, among them
Emmanuel Pahud, Barry Douglas, Maria João Pires and John Lill.
