Enjoy a free, immersive musical experience in Stonnington's parks and gardens during March and April. 

Sounds of Stonnington features a selection of pre-recorded new arrangements of contemporary favourites performed by Stonnington Symphony with Artistic Director Roy Theaker as soloist and conductor. 

Pack a picnic and enjoy Stonnington's beautiful green spaces as you listen to the orchestra's pre-recorded melodies, broadcast from speakers installed in the parks. 

Sounds of Stonnington runs from Thursday to Sunday, and the suite of musical pieces will be played several times each day: at 11am, 1pm, 3pm, 5pm and 7pm. 

The music runs for approximately 20 minutes.
