HOT: Orchestra Victoria, NGV International, Great Hall, 180 St Kilda Rd, Melbourne

P1070665 HOT: Orchestra Victoria, NGV International, Great Hall, 180 St Kilda Rd, Melbourne

For those of you lucky enough not to work on a Friday, did you know you can give yourself a dose of classical music with your art every few months at NGV International?

Orchestra Victoria, the orchestra which accompanies Opera Australia and the Australian Ballet is presenting a series of free lunchtime concerts every few months in conjunction with NGV’s current Winter Masterpieces exhibition Vienna Art and Design. The orchestra is presenting a series of classical Viennese works in the glorious Great Hall under the stunning stained glass ceiling by Leonard French.

I attended a concert with a delightful Strauss, Mahler and Beethoven program and I’m already looking forward to the next concert on Friday 14 October, which will feature young Shanghai-born cellist Li Wei Qin.

The tickets are free and are highly sought after so must be booked ahead – just call Orchestra Victoria on 03 9694 3669.

  1. Wow that’s nice. I guess people who have always had the heart for classical music will surely attend this event. Oh some Beethoven or Chopin would be nice…

    Thanks for posting this! My friends and I are definitely attending.
