The main concert entitled 'Saturday Night Symphony' (and which, strangely, contains no symphony) features Leon Fei (violin) and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra with Tianyi Lu (conductor).

Sydney Myer Free Concert - A Symphonic Celebration
Opera in The Bowl

The annual Sidney Myer free concerts with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra return. Admission is free and gates open at 4.30pm, entry is on a first in, best dressed basis. You may bring your own picnic and drinks but White Hat strongly advises you read the Terms & Conditions of Entry before deciding what to bring (e.g. professional cameras and selfie sticks are not permitted).

A Symphonic Celebration features Veriko Tchumburidze (violin), Calvin Bowman (organ) and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra with Benjamin Northey (conductor).

White Hat would add the caveat that nothing replaces experiencing the Saint-Saëns Organ Symphony in a large resonant concert hall or cathedral with a grand pipe organ. However as you lay on your back and look at the stars you  can add the reverberation in your own musical imagination. 

Our rating - 4 Hats
