Our ninth season and Beethoven’s 250th anniversary is packed with Classical and Romantic masterpieces.

We celebrate Ludwig with his own incomparable “Archduke” Trio and works by influencers from the past and into the future from Mozart to Strauss.

Nine sensational musicians, including several brilliant emerging artists, make their Wilma & Friends debuts, joining three fabulous return guests.

I hope you’ll share this feast of glorious music with us!

– Wilma Smith

We regret the postponement of our May concert, “Archduke”, due to Covid19 restrictions but the plan is to present it either later this year if possible or in 2021.  Our fingers are crossed that November’s Romantic Spirit concert will still be able to go ahead as scheduled if the Kiwis are allowed to come over and concerts are happening again.


Meanwhile, I hope you’re all enjoying lots of online concerts at the Melbourne Digital Concert Hall. Watch out for Wilma & Friends – Rock Paper Scissors on June 26!
