The Pulse Chamber Orchestra is an ensemble of selected School of Music string students directed by Patrick Murphy and Associate Professor Adam Chalabi. The orchestra performs unconducted, each member contributing to the artistic vision of the works. Pulse’s eclectic repertoire ranges from masterworks of the string orchestra and string quartet genre, to transcriptions of Bartok’s Mikrokosmos, to works of contemporary and past Australian composers.

Pulse also collaborates frequently with choirs and vocalists, most notably in with The Choir of Temple Church in 2017, in performing liturgical repertoire including works of Bruckner, Rutter, CPE Bach, J .S. Bach and Benjamin Britten. Pulse regularly engages with school students through visits and tours in regional areas, including the 2017 Cairns tour (supported by the Kinnane Bequest) where they worked with over one hundred staff and students.
