What we're listening to...

Tune in to the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra YouTube channel at 7.30 on Thursdays for live performances. Make it a family affair, or enjoy it on your own!
 

Tune in to the Ballet

Stream high quality ballet performances from your television or laptop totally free! There's a section to sign up for notification so you know exactly when a new ballet is released. Romeo and Juliet is on the schedule, which is great for our Year 9 students studying the text this year.
 

Watch the Theatre

Podcasts
