Discover VDB in 2024

As we prepare to farewell 2023, it is with enormous pleasure that I am able to start sharing some of our 2024 plans - starting with the announcement of our 2024 Launceston Series! We have 7 wonderful concerts in Launceston next year, including the debut of our hugely popular Lunchbox Concerts.

We'll be announcing more concerts around the state over the coming weeks, so keep checking back in.

For those who can't make it to a live performance (or want to re-live a show), we have a delectable range of digital broadcasts available in our "Watch & Listen" section.

I look forward to welcoming you to a performance soon.

About VDB

Van Diemen's Band is Tasmania's own chamber orchestra and concert presenter.

We breathe new life into historical performance practice, bringing contemporary relevance to long-forgotten works through innovation, creativity and communication.

We regularly tour and present concerts across Tasmania, as well as recording, broadcasting and delivering education and community outreach programs.

Our next instrument

Extraordinary music requires extraordinary instruments. We are raising funds to commission a "Zampieri" harp from Dutch maker Rainer Thurau.

"This is not recreating an imagined past. It’s creating music now ... add performances of the highest calibre and an infectiously enthusiastic stage presence, and you have an ensemble that is a welcome addition to the baroque and beyond conversation."
