Musicians of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra

Come and jam with the MSO! The MSO’s Family Jams provide an opportunity for members of the public to “jam” with musicians of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in a fun, inclusive and informal environment. Participants aged six years and over are encouraged to bring along their own instrument (or borrow one of ours) and, over the course of an hour, work together to develop an original piece of music that’s based on orchestral repertoire within the current MSO season. Each workshop culminates in a performance which is open to the general public.

Discover the distinctive Czech melodies and rhythms of Smetana’s Má vlast.
