Happy New Year

Dear friends,

It has been a while since our last update. A belated Happy New Year. We hope 2021 is a good year for all.

It’s encouraging to see activity in the arts industry, and we want to be a part of it! We are planning 3 concerts for June, September and November. Stay tuned for details.

We’re busy working through the logistics and contacting players to decide our concert programs. There will be health guidelines to follow of course, but we’re ready to start playing music together again.

If you’d like to join The Melbourne Sinfonia this year – as a new musician or volunteer – please email us at: orchestralmanager@melbournesinfonia.org.au.

Hope to see you soon.

An update

Dear friends,

We hope you’re all well. Just a quick update from us.

Due to the current environment we didn’t perform our concert scheduled for this week, Friday 12th June. We have also cancelled our September concert.

It’s too early to know whether our last concert of the year will go ahead on Friday, 27th November. We are of course subject to all the issues of social distancing, government guidelines and venue availability, covering both the concert evening and rehearsals. Stay tuned for updates.

For our annual ticket subscribers, we’ll be in touch about arranging a refund for the June and September concerts. Thank you to those who are generously offering their ticket cost as a donation to the Royal Children’s Hospital.

Take care, and we look forward to sharing music with you again soon.

Cancelled ~ concert 20 March 2020

In light of the changing environment with Coronavirus and its associated guidelines and protocols, we have cancelled our concert scheduled for this Friday 20th March.

This is a precautionary measure to help protect the health and wellbeing of our audience, musicians and volunteers, and because our concert venue is now closed for public events until at least mid-April.

We will be issuing refunds to those who have already purchased tickets.

Thank you for your understanding; and please take care.

Mark your diaries ~ Friday 20 March

It’s February, meaning the end of our summer break and the beginning of our 2020 concert season. Our first concert of the year on Friday, 20th March will feature this thoughtfully selected program spanning the Baroque, Romantic and Modern eras:

  • Mendelssohn ~ Hebrides Overture
  • Bach ~ Brandenburg Concerto No. 4
  • Samuel Barber ~ Adagio for Strings
  • Schubert ~ Symphony No. 3

We look forward to the pleasure of your company.
