AUTUMN WITH THE MSO
Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in Autumn. Join the movement.
Romeo and Juliet
Friday 10 & Monday 13 May | Hamer Hall | $61–$123
A charming mix of music. Excerpts from Prokofiev’s masterful ballet score, Romeo and Juliet will delight, while Chopin’s First Piano Concerto showcases the dialogue between pianist and orchestra. Night on Bald Mountain is an exciting curtain-raiser; this concert will suit all music lovers.
Thursday 16 May | Hamer Hall | $59–$149
An array of water-themed works awaits, from Liadov’s Enchanted Lake to Debussy’s La Mer. Five pieces featuring gentle strings, harps and woodwind and moments of contrasting brass and percussion. Perfect for those after a symphonic program with a beautiful theme.
Mozart Symphony No.29

Be entranced as MSO’s Principal Violist, Chris Moore leads the orchestra through Arvo Pärt’s series of minor scales. Followed by two dazzling works by Britten, before Mozart’s Symphony No. 29 concludes your evening. An orchestral evening of sublime balance and fulfilment.
Friday 31 May & Saturday 1 June | Hamer Hall | $75–$125
Featuring the incredible vocals of Laura Mvula, who has been penned as the Nina Simone of our generation, alongside American jazz and hip hop artist José James, the MSO will perform a series of George Gershwin works as interpreted by conductor, composer, producer, and musician Troy Miller.
