Melbourne Festival Comes to Monash

Music students in Melbourne Festival line-up

Students from the Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music will feature in one of Melbourne’s premier arts events this month – the Melbourne Festival.

The Festival, which runs from 11 to 27 October, is one of Australia’s flagship international arts festivals, and Monash proud to be a sponsor.

Monash is sponsoring two projects featured in the line-up – Membra Jesu Nostri, featuring the Monash Sinfonia, and Future Fusion.

The second project, Future Fusions, will see international virtuoso violinist Tim Fain teaming up with our School of Music staff and students at the Melbourne Recital Centre Salon for an exclusive performance.
