Melbourne Symphony Orchestra

Melbourne Symphony Orchestra

We’re really pleased to announce the launch of a new website for Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.

Melbourne Symphony Orchestra is Australia’s internationally-acclaimed and oldest orchestra, established in 1906. MSO has built a reputation for excellence, versatility and innovation over the years. We wanted to provide a fresh, modern look that would allow that to shine through.

We’re rolling out this site in phases. The next one, due for completion later this year, involves full Tessitura ticketing integration through our BlocksOffice platform, allowing for mobile-optimised SYOS and sophisticated subscription models.

This also happens to be the first work out of the studio for our growing roster of Australian clients. Our international profile has been growing recently and we’ll have much more to announce over the coming months.
