Astra Chamber Music Society Inc
Astra is an organisation considered at the forefront of music in Australia as a result of its innovative programming in choral music, classical and contemporary work, support for Australian composers and artists, pushing the boundaries between art forms and presenting concerts in diverse and unusual settings. The annual Astra programme includes the presentation of between 6 to 12 concerts, in venues across metropolitan Melbourne, and the publication of both scores and compact discs.
The collection comprises approximately 60 years of concert recordings showcasing new Australian and international composition, with accompanying scores and program notes. The collection is being progressively documented online.
