Richard Bonynge Ensemble

Established in 2021, the Richard Bonynge Ensemble (RBE) is an elite ensemble comprising some of the finest young talents from Penrith Conservatorium of Music and Penrith Youth Orchestra.

Through the integration of experienced musicians and mentors alongside young, talented instrumentalists, the ensemble aims to create its own distinctive style and unique culture. It also aims to train the next generation of classical musicians.

In December 2021, the ensemble gave its first public performance at the unveiling of the commissioned portrait of Maestro Richard Bonynge AC, CBE by Australian artist Mathew Lynn at the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre.
