Changing of the Guard in Melbourne


Melbourne Symphony Orchestra Concertmaster Wilma Smith has today announced she is set to step down at the end of the 2014 season – after more than 10 years service

It is time to 'move and to make way for new leadership,' she has said

In addition to performing with the MSO in more than 500 concerts, Ms Smith has also performed as a soloist to great critical acclaim – with Chief Conductor Sir Andrew Davis describing her recent performance of 'The Lark Ascending' as 'unquestionably the most beautiful' of all solo performances he has conducted
