Symphonic Dances

Monash University Clayton Campus


Bookings Available Soon

Join the Monash Academy Orchestra for a performance of captivating works by Boulanger, Edwards, Ravel and Rachmaninoff, under the baton of Australian conductor, Aaron Wyatt.

The Monash Academy Orchestra returns to the stage of Robert Blackwood Hall for another season of inspirational music making.

From Lili Boulanger’s delightful D’un matin de printemps, to the hypnotic rhythms of Ross Edwards’s Ecstatic Dance and exquisite orchestrations of Ravel’s Mother Goose Suite, this is a program of music for everyone.

Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances was his final orchestral score, receiving its premiere in 1941. An audience favourite, it is a work full of rhythmic energy and rich harmonic colour; a musical kaleidoscope from start to finish.

The orchestra will be joined by emerging conductor, Aaron Wyatt, who in 2022 became the first Indigenous Australian to conduct a state symphony orchestra in concert.
