About the tour
Over 9 days and nights, the Melbourne Grammar School Symphony Orchestra will cover the length and breadth of Victoria, from the Gippsland Lakes to the Murray River, from the dairy farms of the Western District to the grain silos of the Mallee.
This 3,000km adventure will take place on our own chartered heritage train complete with
sleeping carriages, which will be our home as we bring our music to the people of regional Victoria.
The musicians will spend their days discovering the traditional and settlement history of each area, undertaking workshops with local musicians, as well as visiting historic and other local points of interest, and properties of several of our Melbourne Grammar families.
They’ll perform at least eight concerts of various sizes and levels of formality in venues great and small. Some nights they’ll perform in modern theatres, others in heritage halls, sometimes in farm sheds and sometimes under the stars.
