The first report from our series of research projects focusing on grassroots community-based music making has been released. Community Orchestras in Australia looks at how many groups we have in Australia, how many people are in them, what repertoire they play (and would like to play more), and how orchestras source their music. * Read the report online <http://musicincommunities.org.au/research/research/509> * Download Community Orchestras in Australia (PDF) musicincommunities.org.au/images/stories/PDFs/July2012_CommunityOrch estrasInAustralia_masso.pdf * Read a blog post about Coffs Harbour City Orchestra musicincommunities.org.au/news/mentors-blog/508-chco * Read a blog post about the SBS Youth Orchestra musicincommunities.org.au/news/mentors-blog/507-guestpost-sbs
