What does work experience at MSO involve?
Placements are run in a group format, with a strong focus on arts administration. During their time with the MSO, students will have the opportunity to meet with musicians and staff, mix with MSO’s industry-leading artistic planning team, observe orchestral rehearsals and explore Melbourne’s arts precinct.
Most of all, students will come away from their placement with a broad understanding of the role played by the MSO – as a cornerstone of Melbourne’s rich cultural heritage – in the Victorian and Australian performing arts industries.
We welcome applications by all students attending Secondary School in Australia aged 15 years+ as of the placement date. The MSO can accept up to 30 students per placement and will hold two placements which run for three days:
- Tuesday 28 - Thursday 30 June, 10am – 4pm OR
- Tuesday 9 August - Thursday 11 August, 10am - 4pm
