Two major free classical peformances coming to Live at the Bowl

Words by Zachary Sanderson

The beautiful outdoor music venue will be hosting free performances this coming February for Live at the Bowl.

With 2022 coming to an end, Arts Centre Melbourne, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and the iconic Bowl have ushered in a new period of free musical experiences next year. Promising a walk-in basis without a booking required, The Sidney Myer Music Bowl has you covered for last-minute plans this February.

Live at the Bowl’s free classical music

  • Sidney Myer Music Bowl has released a program of all their free events
  • Walk in basis with gates opening at 4.30pm
  • Variety of different acts over several dates in February

Keep up with the latest music news, features, festivals, interviews and reviews here.

Since 1959, the iconic venue has released a series of free events for anyone to come. First in best dressed, there’s absolutely no booking required. Simply show up with your sunscreen and picnic blanket, and it’s all up to you.

Music from the world-renowned Russian composer Tchaikovsky will be going ahead on Wednesday, February 8. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky is considered a giant in classical music and became the first Russian composer to make an impact internationally during the romantic period. All covered by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, expect a relaxing afternoon of classical tunes from 7.30PM onwards.

Keeping on the classical vibe, Carmina Burana will also be going ahead on February 18. Led by the winner of Lev Vlassenko Piano Competition, Hannah Shin, and backed by the Melbourne Youth Orchestra, they’re set to perform Prokofiev’s most enduring piano concerto.

Sergei Prokofiev is considered as one of the most prominent composers of the 20th century and it’ll all be going ahead from 7.30pm. Another concert to kick back and relax to this coming February.

With space for over 12,000 attendees and food trucks being on-site, Live at the Bowl is a no-brainer. What better time to spend a summer’s day than at a venue that captures the best of the open air and free live music?
