Soon we’ll start rehearsing for our next concert on Friday 11th September 2015. We have another great program:
- Arensky: Variations on a theme of Tchaikovsky for String Orchestra
- Tchaikovsky: Variations on a Rococo Theme, for Cello and Orchestra – with soloist Zoe Knighton
- Beethoven: Symphony No. 7 in A major
You can purchase tickets online at a discounted price – see the “Tickets” page.
We have some great news to share. Since 2014 we’ve been supporting the Royal Children’s Hospital Gatehouse, which provides crisis and ongoing services to children, adolescents and their families where sexual abuse is known or suspected to have happened.
Gatehouse recently used donations from The Melbourne Sinfonia to purchase five sensory toy boxes for use in counselling rooms. These boxes allow comforting, repetitive sensory experiences and soothing and patterned play with safe, patient adults. They improve self-regulation and functions relating to motor, emotional, social and cognitive skills.
We look forward to continue supporting Gatehouse.
