In 2024, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra (MSO) will showcase 12 world premieres, 17 MSO debuts and 14 artists performing exclusively with the Orchestra. It’s a year of programming centred around storytelling, those that move and inspire us, from the experimental to the familiar.
Australian premieres of MSO commissions include Chinese-American composer Tan Dun and Scottish composer James MacMillan. World premieres include new work from Deborah Cheetham Fraillon AO, 2024 Composer in Residence Katy Abbot, and Cybec Young Composer in Residence Naomi Dodd. A new world premiere and a collaboration between Elena Kats-Chernin and William Barton will also join the lineup.
