The University of Melbourne Symphony Orchestra presents 'One passion, Many destinations'

The University of Melbourne Symphony Orchestra led by world-renowned conductor Associate Professor Richard Davis, features the very best student classical musicians and is the premier large performance ensemble at Australia’s No.1 University†.

Australia’s leading tertiary orchestra and has entertained over 40,000 audience members in the past decade in some of Australia’s finest venues in Sydney and Melbourne.

In its inaugural overseas tour, the Orchestra is excited to share the talents of these exceptional musicians with audiences and orchestra lovers in Singapore.

In the first half of this concert, the orchestra will take you on an ocean voyage – first with Alice Humphries’ Tides and then with Elgar’s beautifully crafted setting of 5 sea poems, entitled Sea Pictures. The second half will immediately pull on your emotions – from despair to triumph – with Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony which has remained one of his most popular works – the audience, in the première of this work, openly wept and cheered and gave the composer a 30-minute standing ovation.
