Sidney Myer Free Concerts: 'Summer Carnival'

  • Sidney Myer Music Bowl (map)

For the second Sidney Myer free concert of the summer, Joshua Weilerstein (conductor), is joined by Melbourne Symphony Orchestra's Concertmaster Dale Barltrop as soloist in the Violin Concerto by Samuel Barber. This is followed by the MSO performing Dvorak's overture 'Carnival', and Tchaikovsky's magnificent Symphony No. 5 to complete the program.

As with the first concert- gates open at 4:30pm, concert starts at 7:30pm. And it's FREE! This is a great chance to see the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in all its glory- without having to pay a cent! Go early to pick up 'tickets' for entry, then come back to secure a place on the lawn with your picnic rug! This event is family friendly and is a great way to spend a summer evening. You can bring a picnic rug/food and drinks as long as you have no glass items, otherwise you can also purchase these at the event.
