Ravel Boléro
Ravel Tzigane
Holst The Planets (selections)

Chief Conductor Designate Jaime Martín leads the MSO and Melbourne Youth Orchestra in a special collaborative concert. Enjoy two symphonic showstoppers as the MSO performs side by side with the next generation of orchestral musicians.

Ravel’s Boléro, instantly recognisable thanks to its distinct rhythm, is the perfect showcase as it builds throughout, adding all the instruments and colours of the orchestra as it goes.

Then, four epic movements from Holst's The Planets: the thrilling Mars, the sublime Venus, the playful Mercury, and ending with the infinitely cheerful Jupiter.

Orchestra safety on stage
The safety of our musicians, staff and audience remain the highest priority as we return to the post-COVID concert hall. In conjunction with the Department of Health and Human Services Victoria and Arts Centre Melbourne, the MSO has begun rapid-result, asymptomatic testing for all members of the Orchestra and on-stage production staff. As such, you may notice that our musicians are not wearing masks while performing, and that they may be spaced more closely together than previously.

Stay tuned. Sign up.
