Get yourself down to the Sidney Myer Music Bowl for free classical music by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra
Some people like to go for a swim on a warm summer evening – and then some people like to listen to symphonies. If you're the latter then you're in luck because the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra is putting on three free concerts at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl in February.
2019 marks the 90th anniversary of the Sidney Myer Free Concert Series. Admission is free on a first-in, best-dressed basis with the gates opening at 4.30pm each concert day. The first concert will take the audience through the music of famed composer George Gershwin for 'Gershwin and Friends' on February 8. Kick things up a notch with the 'Saturday Night Symphony' on February 16, which will feature songs from Debussy, Tchaikovsky, Berlioz and more. The final concert on February 20 will be 'A Symphonic Celebration' featuring the Holdsworth's Fanfare and works from Saint-Saëns, Dukas and more.
