Community musicians aged 25 years+ from all over Western Australia sit side-by-side with WASO musicians to create The Rusty Orchestra.
Since its inception in 2014, The Rusty Orchestra has given selected community musicians the opportunity to sit alongside WASO musicians in a performance for the general public at Perth Concert Hall.
"Sitting on stage surrounded by WASO first clarinet, oboe and flute was a unique amazing experience. The experience of playing with the WASO professional musicians was a bucket list life experience. Magical. I will never forget it!" -Rusty participant, 2022
