Ears Wide Open: Superwomen of the MSO
Not all heroes wear capes. Hear from the superwomen who get Melbourne’s biggest band on stage – week in, week out. Sharing stories from the road, behind the scenes and on the stage of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, discover the significant contribution of women across the history of this 115-year-old cultural institution. Join us for an unforgettable evening of storytelling and music as we celebrate some of our local heroes for International Women’s Day 2021. Ears Wide Open is proudly presented by TarraWarra Estate, and supported by City of Melbourne and Creative Victoria. MSO’s International Women’s Day 2021 program is proudly presented by Equity Trustees.
