MSO keeps the music going

In response to the ban imposed by the Victorian State Government, MSO regret that all concerts between Monday 16 March and Monday 13 April, inclusive, will not proceed.

MSO will, however, keep the music going. Beginning tonight (March 16) at 7pm, the MSO YouTube channel will live stream a performance of Scheherazade. Additional performances will be added over coming weeks.

If you are a ticket holder to an upcoming concert(s) until 13 April, MSO will contact you via email in coming days. If you hold a ticket to an MSO concert, instead of requesting a refund, patrons are asked to consider donating the value of your ticket, to enable MSO to live stream more free events and continue the mission of the MSO, to enrich lives through music. Please email the MSO Box Office at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

If you hold MSO tickets purchased through one of our venues, please visit the relevant venue website for information on applicable refunds.
