MCO 2017 Gala Dinner

You're invited to join us for a special Gala Dinner in celebration of 25 years of Melbourne Chamber Orchestra. Mouth-watering food from the Sofitel, fine Narkoojee wines, and special performances by Melbourne’s finest soloists will create an evening to remember.

Hamer Quartet

The Hamer Quartet, winners of the Asia Pacific Chamber Music Competition in 2009, is one of Australia’s finest chamber ensembles. Recently reformed, they present iconic quartets by Beethoven and Dvořák, with the Victorian première of Lachlan Skipworth’s Japan inspired quartet, Yamagoe.

Letters from Tchaikovsky

Virtuosic and intimate, passionate and lyrical, the music of Tchaikovsky is pure Romanticism. Featuring the breathtaking Serenade for Strings and violinist Shane Chen performing Souvenir d’un lieu cher.


MCO is joined by Russian pianist Konstantin Shamray for a Romantic program including Schumann's Piano Concerto and Mendelssohn's Italian Symphony.
