Stella Barber will present this talk about the MSO and how it has become the orchestra it is today. The MSO, founded by Alberto Zelman in 1906, has survived wars, depressions, financial near-ruin, restructures and re-launches, name changes and a cavalcade of the world's greatest conductors to become Australia's oldest and possibly greatest symphonic ensemble.
