About this performance

Be serenaded under the stars by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Principal Conductor in Residence Benjamin Northey. As evening falls you'll be treated to a lively romp through Italy in Rossini's overture, the sumptuous sounds of Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings, and two Beethoven favourites.

Join us for a magical evening of music at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl – the quintessential Melbourne summer tradition!
