Update 3 June 11am
As part of the Victorian Government’s COVID-19 response, Victoria is currently in lockdown.
With regret, the performance of Re: Classical on 12/6 at Alexander Theatre has been cancelled due to lockdown restrictions. While the performance date falls outside the lockdown, it is not possible for MCO to rehearse this program in time for a 12/6 performance.
Patrons with tickets to the Alexander Theatre performance will be contacted by the ticketing agent, Monash University Performing Arts Centres, with their options.
Performances 17/6–20/6 are still on sale at this stage.
17 March 12pm
Melbourne Chamber Orchestra’s 2021 Season has been launched.
We invite you to enjoy our performances in our venues in Melbourne and around Victoria; and online on Melbourne Digital Concert Hall.
The details of these events can be found in our “What’s On” section.
No matter how much we want to perform for you again, safety is our number one priority.
At all times, MCO and its venues will abide by the Victorian and Australian regulations and guidelines provided for our types of performances. We expect there could be changes to these rules throughout the year, and thank you for your understanding if circumstances change.
All MCO events are managed under our COVIDSafe Plan and those of our venues.
You’ll notice that our orchestral concerts earlier in the year are shorter than normal (around one hour, no interval). The two orchestral projects in September and November, Young Mozart and Dixit Dominus, return to a two-hour concert with interval.
Of course, please do not attend a performance in 2021 if you are feeling unwell, displaying COVID-19 symptoms, or should be self-isolating. If you are not able to attend a performance for these reasons, let our ticketing partners know prior to the performance and you will be offered a full refund. Ticket holders to the Chamber Music Series at the Athenaeum may also exchange their live ticket to a streaming ticket.
