Thank you to all

Thank you to everyone involved in our concert on Friday. It was a memorable evening for the orchestra and we hope you all enjoyed it.

Bravo to our soloist, Cameron Roberts, for his captivating performance of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4. Our thanks go to Cameron for providing his time and talent to perform with us.

And to our audience – one of our biggest ever! You lifted our spirits and created a very special atmosphere in the auditorium. Your attendance helped us raise money for the Royal Children’s Hospital’s Gatehouse Centre, which provides therapeutic interventions and support for children affected by sexual abuse.

Thanks also to our dedicated volunteers who manage the box office, supper, concert preparations, and many other things behind the scenes. There would be no concerts without you.

Save the date for our next concert on Friday 16th June which will feature acclaimed soprano Lee Abrahmsen. Stay tuned for the concert program!

Thank you

Congratulations to everyone for a fabulous concert on Friday!

Thank you to our musicians, audience, conductor Joannes Roose, volunteers and special guests Matthew Rigby and Yiyun Gu for their double concerto performance.

We should also acknowledge the composers ~ Felix Mendelssohn who wrote the concerto at age 14 (!) and Ludwig van Beethoven for creating such a high-spirited Symphony No. 8.

We were thrilled to share our music with you all and look forward to more concerts in 2023.

Supporting Gatehouse Centre at the Royal Children’s Hospital

Hello friends ~ we have some good news to start your week.

Many of you know that The Melbourne Sinfonia is an Auxiliary of the Royal Children’s Hospital. We donate profits from our concerts to the Hospital’s Gatehouse Centre which is a “Centre Against Sexual Assault”.

Thanks to your support and donations, we were recently able to donate $2,000 to Gatehouse.

This will help Gatehouse continue to provide assessment, treatment and advocacy services to children, young people and their families affected by sexual abuse (known or suspected) or concerning sexual behaviours. These services mainly help families living in the North Western metro area of Melbourne and the cities of Moreland and Hume.

Gatehouse also provides valuable training and consultation services to professionals and other agencies.

Thank you all for supporting this very worthy cause.


Bravo to our musicians and director Joannes Roose for a fabulous concert last night! And congratulations to Luke Severn for his captivating performance of Elgar’s Cello Concerto.

Thanks as always to our audience and volunteers who keep the orchestra running. You enable us to perform these concerts and support a worthy cause – Gatehouse at the Royal Children’s Hospital.

Thank you and congratulations to all.
