The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and other arts groups have combined to launch a “Performance of a lifetime” campaign to get Victorians vaccinated. The campaign features artists such as Tim Minchin, Deborah Cheetham, and Rhonda Burchmore encouraging the arts audiences of Victori to support them and get vaccinated.
A statement from the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra says: “The Victorian arts and entertainment industry cannot perform for our wonderful audiences if there are continued lockdowns and limitations. Like many performing arts organisations – big and small – the operation of the MSO is seriously tested in a lockdown. As long as too many people remain unvaccinated lockdowns will recur. We look forward to our musicians playing and to inviting our audiences to the concert halls. That certainly means bringing audiences back into concert halls reliably – and with the safety of a sufficiently vaccinated population.
“Our talented musicians have trained for a lifetime to perform for audiences. Now we call on our community and the Victorian public to give us the performance of their lifetime; to keep our community safe, and to keep our loved arts and entertainment industry alive.”
