After attending our first family friendly concert performed live by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, we feel it is important to spread the word on how fantastic these shows are.
The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra (MSO) is Australia's oldest professional orchestra. The first MSO's concert took place on 11 December 1906.
Every year, the MSO perform to audiences young and not-so-young, offering not only classical musical performances but also jazz, pop, rock, and even techno collaborations from time to time.
Lately, the MSO's most successful performances have seen classic movie blockbusters screened at the Hamer Hall, Arts Centre Melbourne with music accompanied live by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.
Such collaborations have seen Pixar in Concert, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jurassic Park, and very soon, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone & The Chamber of Secrets (in November 2017) screen at the Hamer Hall alongside the wonderful sounds of the MSO.
If your children are a little younger, the MSO also offer performances aimed at babies and pre-schoolers.
What's happening for the remaining part of 2017:
Jams For Juniors (Including Cinderella, Mozart, The Firebird). Age suitability 0 - 5.
Amadeus Live in Concert.
MSO Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood
MSO Frank Woodley: The Composer is Dead
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone Live in Concert.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Live in Concert.
The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra concerts for children offer inventive introductions to classical music, in ways you wouldn't always think of. Prepare to be spellbound. You'll be hooked after your first concert.
