Event description

Description

In light of the emerging COVID-19 situation the University is adopting a series of changes to reduce rates of infection in the community. The health and wellbeing of our community is of paramount importance. Therefore, all University events have been postponed or cancelled.

The Faculty of Fine Arts and Music’s performances are an important part of our students’ learning and, in many cases, part of their curriculum and assessment. We are working to find alternative modes of delivery, such as live-streaming and recording. Our popular Lunch Hour concerts at Melba Hall, to give just one example, will continue to stream weekly whenever possible.

More information on those arrangements will be available soon. In the meantime, we would like to thank you for your understanding and support in these challenging times and we look forward to seeing you at one of our events when possible.


For the first concert of 2020 the Conservatorium’s Philharmonic Orchestra commence the celebration of Beethoven’s 250th birthday. Written in 1807, the Coriolan Overture was not composed as a prelude to Shakespeare's tragedy Coriolanus, but as a dedication to German poet, Heinrich Josef von Collin. The short piece features a main theme in C minor that represents Coriolanus' resolve and war-like tendencies, while a more tender E-flat major theme represents the pleadings of his mother to desist. On the opposite scale, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2 is one of his most energetic works and was conducted by the composer at the premiere in 1803.

We strongly encourage booking in advance for all of our events. This guarantees your seat, and allows us to communicate any unforeseen event scheduling changes with you.
