LEC undertook a ten day cach tour of western NSW in September 2005. The key event of this Outback Tour was the celebration of the sesquicentenary of the founding of Coonamble in 1855. The repertoire for the tour was almost entirely Australian works written in the previous three years, including several pieces commissioned by the LEC.
