MSO for Schools

In 2021 the MSO brings together wonderful artists, stunning repertoire and an impressive array of guest conductors to inspire students and support the work of teacher’s in the classroom.

MSO For Schools includes concerts for students of all ages and abilities, professional development opportunities for generalist and specialist music teachers, opportunities for advanced students to extend themselves and pathways for schools that have never engaged with the MSO before.

Thanks to the generosity of numerous supporters we’ve lowered ticket prices to $9 making MSO For Schools more accessible than ever before.

Supporting our teachers at this challenging time is a key priority and we are delighted to offer a range of free digital learning and engagement initiatives ideal for both online or live-in-classroom delivery.
