2020 Season

Stonnington Symphony not only strives for excellence as a creator of music but as a creator of community.

It is with a heavy heart that the committee of management write to inform you that due to the ongoing restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic and in the interest of the health of our community – our members, artists and audience – we have made the decision to cancel our last remaining event for 2020 – Sunday Series 3 – A Celebration of Beethoven at Malvern Town Hall.
A full refund will be offered to all those who have purchased tickets to this concert.
Pending advice from government and City of Stonnington, it is our hope that we are able to run our scheduled 2020 programs as planned in 2021.
Mark your calendars now!
Peter and the Wolf – Saturday 27 March
Sunday Series 1 – Sunday 23 May
Sunday Series 2 – Sunday 15 August
Symphony in a Day – Saturday 14 September
Sunday Series 3 – Sunday 14 November

We invite you to join us at the Malvern Town Hall to experience remarkable symphonic music from around the world. We open our 2020 Sunday Series under the baton of Ingrid Martin in A Bright New World. This program features Concerto Grosso for Saxophone Quartet and Orchestra by American composer William Bolcom performed by Joseph Lallo and students from the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music. Our guest artists are supported by funds generously donated to the Artistic Development Fund. You will not want to miss Dvorak's iconic Symphony No.9 "From a New World".

Marvel at Melbourne's own Laurence Matheson performing Mozart's Piano Concerto No.12. K414 in a program conducted by Simon Thew, Assistant Conductor of The Australian Ballet Company, featuring Brahms' Variations on a Theme by Joseph Haydn and Tchaikovsky's Symphony No.5, Op.64.

You will not want to miss A Celebration of Beethoven featuring Artistic Director Roy Theaker as soloist and conductor in Beethoven's Violin Concerto Op.61 and unforgettable Symphony No. 3 in Eb Major, "Eroica", Op.55. This program will also receive an encore performance at the Castlemaine Town Hall on Sunday 22 November dedicated to the late Barry Tuckwell, former Artistic Director of Stonnington Symphony.

We would like to thank the City of Stonnington and East Malvern Community Bank for their continued support to ensure we can provide great orchestral music at the highest standard, at affordable prices!
