About our Southbank Series

Discover extraordinary orchestral music from the best seat in the house.

Orchestra Victoria proudly presents its 2024 Southbank Series. Led by an extraordinary lineup of conductors, each of our concerts gets you up-close-and-personal with artists in ways that only the chamber setting can.

This year, our much-loved series embarks on a new journey, evolving to showcase larger chamber orchestra works under the baton of renowned Australian and international conductors including Kynan Johns (protégé of Maestro Lorin Maazel), Fabian Russell, and the Music Director and Chief Conductor of the Australian Ballet, Jonathan Lo.

From the timeless elegance of Purcell to the revolutionary spirit of Shostakovich, each concert is carefully programmed to transport you around the world and throughout history. Highlights include the poignant melodies of Elgar's Introduction and Allegro and Stravinsky's unforgettable The Soldier's Tale.

There’s nothing quite like witnessing a chamber orchestra in concert. From the up-close experience of musicians’ nuanced communication to the thrill of history’s most impressive repertoire, Orchestra Victoria’s Southbank Series is an experience not to be missed.

Tickets to the 2024 Southbank Series are available both as series packages and individual events. Whether you're seeking a memorable night out or your very first live orchestral experience, our Southbank Series offers you an intimate insight into a concert experience with access to the exceptional talent of Orchestra Victoria’s artistic family.

Join us for the 2024 Southbank Series and experience the power and beauty of orchestral music from the best seat in the house. In 2024, we bring the music to you.
