Education and Community Engagement

Welcome to the MSO’s 2018 Education and Community Engagement program.

Our season is designed to take you on a journey of discovery, exploration and extension.



Melbourne’s favourite comedians Tripod are back as the Education Week featured artists in 2018, and the introduction of the MSO Mornings Series means Secondary students can see the biggest names in classical music live in special one-hour Friday morning performances.

Guided Open Rehearsals

Secondary students get the chance to experience what it’s like in the MSO rehearsal room, while listening to world-renowned artists performing stunning repertoire.


Family favourites Jams for Juniors and Classic Kids are back in 2018, and the family line-up expands with Ears Wide Open and a special performance of Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story.


2018 sees the return of Tripod as the featured artists for Education Week, MSO’s flagship annual celebration of lifelong learning. Expect a live podcast recording, a musical on-stage battle, and a Meet the Orchestra experience unlike any other!


These exclusives for MUSO members aged 18-35 offer the chance to hear rarely performed pieces of work while the orchestra prepare for some of 2018’s biggest performances.
