Code AUMO

Adelaide Town Hall

Code AUMO featured a unique array of both classical and modern pieces teamed with refreshing arrangements and compositions. When the idea of the AUMO Medley first premiered on stage in AUMOgenesis, it was hugely well received as a delightfully creative end to the evening and this continued year after year. This year, deciding to innovate further, two of AUMO's finest arrangers, Timothy Wareham and Paaree Senguttuvan, composed their own piece, representing the ultimate fusion of music and medicine - "AUMO's Anatomy", an eclectic musical textbook of the various organ systems of the body!

Highlights included: Swan Lake (Tchaikovsky), Suite from Romeo and Juliet (Prokofiev), Rhapsody in Blue (Gershwin), Sleep (Whitacre), AUMO choreographed dances (hip-hop, lyrical and choreographers) and AUMO's Anatomy (Wareham, Senguttuvan).

AUMO's highly anticipated fifth annual concert was a huge success. Returning once again to the beautiful Adelaide Town Hall, the Adelaide University Medical Orchestra impressed the sold-out audience with a variety of classical and contemporary pieces.

AUMO In Operation

Michael Murray Centre, Westminster School

The performance of AUMO in Operation was an astonishing combination of music, multimedia, drama and the creative arts. Building on the successes of the prior two concerts, AUMO in Operation strove yet again to creatively present the spectrum of music in all its genres and manifestations, combining music, multimedia, drama and the creative arts. The evening culminated in the AUMO medley, an enormous all-ensemble encompassing performance rapidly being established as one of the most popular AUMO concert traditions!

Highlights included The Voyage II: Distant Empires (composed by AUMO member, Paaree Senguttuvan), When I Get You Alone (Thicke), The Chicken (Ellis), Requiem in D minor (Mozart) in collaboration with the Adelaide University Choral Society, the return of the Hip Hop Crew and the Music Through the Ages Medley (arranged by AUMO's arranging team).

The AUMO Experiment

Adelaide Town Hall

In 2010, the Adelaide University Medical Orchestra presented The AUMO Experiment.

Under the soaring roof of the Adelaide Town Hall, seating 900 people, AUMO performed a repertoire notable for its huge variety and creative interpretation. It was truly a night to remember and a very memorable experience for performers and audience alike. The money raised was used to build a playground and garden area at the recently built Parenting Centre at the Tullawon Health Service in the Yalata community.

Highlights included Carmina Burana (Orff) in collaboration with the Adelaide University Choral Society, Fly Me to the Moon (Sinatra), Phantom of the Opera (Lloyd Webber), and a hugely entertaining Disney Medley (arranged by AUMO's arranging team).

AUMOgenesis: the Birth of Sound

Scott Theatre, the University of Adelaide

Our 2009 premiere performance AUMOgenesis: the Birth of Sound was a groundbreaking sell-out event in the 650-seat Scott Theatre.

Audiences were delighted as they were propelled through a spectacle of awe and wonder. With a vast diversity of repertoire, there was something for everyone. Both the musicians’ and audience’s perspective of music was challenged and broadened through a unique and vivacious culmination of music and dance.

Highlights included The Carnival of the Animals (Camille Saint-Saëns), a Lord of the Rings Medley (Howard Shore), I'm a Believer (Smash Mouth), Chameleon (Herbie Hancock), and finishing with a Hip Hop Medley (arranged by AUMO's arranging team).
