Join The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and special guests for the first full performance of world-class composer Dr Allan Zavod’s Environmental Symphony.

Victoria’s premier concert venue, Hamer Hall, will host the inspirational live event with an 80 strong orchestra, performing to synchronised visuals and narration by Australian film legend Jack Thompson, in what will be a tribute to Allan Zavod’s genius.

Bert Newton will host the evening and in addition to the Environmental Symphony, patrons will enjoy Rachmaninoff’s spectacular Symphonic Dances, which Allan Zavod has selected to accompany his symphony.

One performance only!

Dr Zavod is currently undergoing treatment for brain cancer. He has requested that 100% of the proceeds from the performance be donated to the world-leading brain cancer research of The Royal Melbourne Hospital Neuroscience Foundation.
