Vacancies – Come & be a part of Ady for 2024

2022 Schubert Symphony 9

At Ady, we believe in creating experiences that are innovative, fresh, alive, & meaningful – for listeners & players alike. We’re a project-based ensemble, with members with backgrounds as professional musicians, graduates, tertiary music students, and talented community players. Since since 2011 we’ve produced memorable performances that have included well-known classical works, along with inspiring collaborations with local & interstate composers. Early in 2021, the ensemble’s recording of Bonshek’s “Dreams of the Earth” was released commercially, resulting in the work being awarded the “Contemporary Classical” work at the 2022 Queensland Music Awards, & in 2022 the ensemble released its recording of Brahms’ 2nd Symphony. More recently, in 2023 the ensemble gave a stunning performance of Bruckner’s 4th Symphony.

Of course, none of this happens without having some wonderful people involved. Our core value is Fun, & in achieving a warm, collegial, feel the ensemble has achieved high levels of performance – rewarding for both our players & audiences alike. We have vacancies for both performers & within our wonderful admin people, & we’re taking applications now! Please note that these are fun projects, not paid projects, which have a focus on the professional development of our members, & as part of the Ady experience we provide Professional Development & ensemble subject hours for teachers & tertiary students.
