International Touring

International Touring has a rich history at the MSO and it is a vital part of our ongoing work and artistic development. Touring helps the MSO to become a better orchestra for you, and allows our world class musicians to further develop their skills and musicianship to continue performing at the highest level. The special bonding experience that comes from these tours unites the musicians into an even more integrated unit – and that’s when absolute magic happens in the music, which we bring home to you.

Touring helps the MSO:
- Build relationships with the artistic community overseas – meaning we can offer you more top quality soloists and conductors in Melbourne;
- Enhance our reputation at home and around the world – leading to more people like you wanting to experience our music, an increase in sales of our recordings and further invitations to perform abroad;
- Introduce and showcase Australian works and artists – supporting Australian art is something we care very deeply about and international touring allows us to bring our unique take on the art form to new audiences; and
- Represent our city and country abroad – as cultural ambassadors we promote not only Australian music but you and our community.

Following highly successful tours in China (2018) and the US (2019), the MSO has been invited to perform in Europe this year.

These invitations by prestigious festivals in Spain, England and Scotland reflect how highly regarded the MSO is internationally and we hope – with your support of the Month of Giving appeal – to tour there in the coming months.

Please support your orchestra with a contribution to the MSO’s Month of Giving appeal today and help us share our music with the world.
