The MSO is one of Australia’s leading orchestras and each year engages more than 3.5 million people through over 160 live performances, recordings, and TV/radio broadcasts. From its first performance in 1906 the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra has offered the very best in orchestral music and collaborates with guest artists and arts organizations from across the world.

Sir Andrew Davis gave his inaugural concerts as the MSO’s Chief Conductor in 2013, having made his debut with the Orchestra in 2009. Highlights of his tenure have included collaborations with artists such as Bryn Terfel, Renee Fleming, Anne-Sophie Mutter, and the Orchestra’s China Tour in 2018 which included six sold-out performances across the country.

Although long regarded as one of the world’s leading exponents of the music of Frédéric Chopin, Garrick Ohlsson commands an enormous repertoire, which ranges over the entire piano literature. A student of the late Claudio Arrau, Mr. Ohlsson has come to be noted for his masterly performances of the works of Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert, as well as the Romantic repertoire. To date he has at his command more than 80 concertos, ranging from Haydn and Mozart to works of the 21st century, many commissioned for him.
