MYO UNLIMITED Inspire Program

We recognise that MYO is a place where young Victorians who are passionate about music come together to feed their passions, gain inspiration, and receive musical insights and inspiration beyond what can be delivered by schools.

Our current situation has provided us with a unique opportunity to share some of our online program with siblings and friends of our MYO participants.  To that end, we are excited to invite you to join our four Listen Lounges with MYO Music Director, Brett Kelly, in conversation with international guest artists, and also view seven live masterclasses delivered by members of Melbourne Symphony Orchestra working with students of MYO’s senior ensembles.  All sessions will be delivered through a Zoom meeting or webinar.
