It’s MSO and it’s free, what more do I need to say?!
Bring a picnic blanket (or a camping mat if that’s more of your style), wine, cheese, ham, BBQ chicken and/or whatever you fancy, and enjoy The Tang of the Tango – a Spanish-South American program brought to you by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra that includes tangos by Astor Piazzolla, a Concerto for two guitars by Joaquin Rodrigo, and works by Ginastera, Falla and Gershwin (I don’t know whom they are either, but I am sure they are good…).
If you are new to town, this is the BEST outdoor event in Melbourne (apart from other wonderful events)! If you have been here for a while or your whole life but always missed out, this is your chance to enjoy it with fellow climbers and discuss what climbing and music have in common – I am sure there are some, just haven’t quite figured out what they are yet.
Gates open at 4:30pm and concert starts at 7:30pm. It runs for about 2 hours and includes a 20 minute interval. Entry is on a first in, best dressed basis, and it does get full so arrive early to avoid disappointment. Bring as many friends/climbing buddies/housemates/family/relatives/in laws as you like. And don’t worry, I will not ask you for your emergency contact details or sign for a helmet.
Bear in mind that the following items are not permitted in the venue: Chair or table more than 20cm off the ground, glass drinking glasses, long bladed kitchen knives, Eskys… see website for full details.
