About the event

Celebrate the music of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra when musicians return to the online stage for the MSO Music Marathon, a half-day event of fine music on the Queen’s Birthday holiday, Monday 8 June.

This special event will feature a program filled with live-streamed chamber music from Southbank, and a collection of recent MSO concerts.

Headlining the MSO Music Marathon will be the recent world premiere collaboration of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, with Circa Contemporary Circus, performed in February 2020. Other performances include Beethoven’s 6th (arranged for virtual orchestra) and 7th symphonies as well as his Septet, Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending (arranged for string sextet, featuring Dale Barltrop), Peter Sculthorpe’s String Quartet No.18, Vivaldi’s Winter from The Four Seasons featuring Anne-Marie Johnson, and Danish String Quartet’s Last Leaf.

Deborah Cheetham’s musical acknowledgement of country, Long Time Living Here will open the Marathon, with her Dutala, star-filled sky also included in the program. The event will be interspersed with conversations with MSO musicians.
