Cancelled: Passages



‘A unique musical and emotional experience.’ Nikos Fotakis,

Founded in 2011 by pianist and composer Gemma Turvey, New Palm Court Orchestra (NPCO) brings freedom to the concert stage, bridging jazz, classical and world-music influences with graceful ease. The NPCO champions the music of local Australian composers and is renowned for its high-quality partnerships and daring programs.

Evocative music performed by New Palm Orchestra takes you up the mountain tops to admire the breathtaking beauty of nature, romance and leisure. From Eugene Friesen’s joyous First Ride to Dave Grusin’s Mountain Dance, and the premiere of Gemma Turvey’s Mountain Pass, these are works that truly uplift the spirits, invoking dreamy pictures of beautiful and unspoilt landscapes.

Concert Update

It is with deep regret that Artistic Director Gemma Turvey and NPCO’s Board of Directors announce that the orchestra will cease performances and cease trading as at Sunday, 30 June 2019. NPCO encourages all their supporters to keep championing Australian music and musicians, regardless of genre for without music the world is a sadder place.
