About the performance
To start his final season as Chief Conductor, there is no more fitting time for Sir Andrew Davis to appear on the podium with the MSO than at our Season Opening Gala.
Lu Siqing joined Sir Andrew and the MSO on a 2018 tour of China, performing Bruch’s Violin Concerto and Tchaikovsky’s Sixth Symphony, Pathétique, to six rapturous, standing ovations across the country. Be the first in Australia to see this program performed by two stars, as well as your Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.
