About this event

Join us to celebrate two of the MSO’s most exciting artist development programs: First Voices First Nations Composer program and Ensemble Dutala Residency.

Hear the premiere of two works by First Nations composers performed by members of Australia’s first ensemble for classically trained First Nations musicians alongside members of the MSO.

An important evening of music and conversation that will celebrate the vital contribution First Nations musicians and composers make to the ongoing vitality of the orchestral sector.
