About this performance

The natural world, weather and the seasons have been a perennial source of inspiration for composers. Join the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in an exploration of Nature’s Seasons in a performance that will bring a uniquely Australian perspective to this age-old subject.

Featuring a new work by Yuin woman Brenda Gifford, this program will take us beyond the European calendar and connect us more deeply to the ancient land we live in.

Duration: approx. 50 minutes, no interval
