MSO’s 2018 China Tour Appeal

As one of Australia’s leading orchestras, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra has been invited to represent our country as a cultural ambassador and undertake a six-city tour of China in May 2018.

Led by our Chief Conductor Sir Andrew Davis, 82 MSO musicians and key artists we have been asked to perform in Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Nanjing and Qingdao before we reach Beijing and the breathtaking National Centre for the Performing Arts Concert Hall.

We will of course also perform in Shanghai, home of the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra with whom we have an important three year cultural-partnership agreement.

Today, our generous supporters and tour partners in Australia and across Asia are working with us to make this next high-profile tour a reality, but we need your help to raise the funds to get us on our way.

Our campaign goal is $100,000 by the end of this calendar year.

Through your contribution, however great or small, your MSO will proudly represent Australia on the global stage and build the reputation of, and international interest in, our vibrant arts and cultural sectors.
