Professor Iain Martin – Vice Chancellor

Deakin University has always maintained a strong association with the arts community of Geelong and the GSO is an important cultural institution for the region and for Victoria.

In my relatively new status as a local resident, I really enjoy attending GSO concerts. The orchestra is known for its clever programming and high standard of performance, so it is no wonder this orchestra attracts world class soloists to present a repertoire that is both challenging and exhilarating for players and audiences alike.


Raise your bow
if you are Deakin Alumni

Like conductor and orchestra,
great partnerships rely on communication.

If you graduated from Deakin, preserve or reconnect that important partnership.
