It's cold, it's dark, it's hard to get out of bed in the morning. It feels like winter is here to stay, but fear not! MIV and the summer of '69 is only five short months away. And this month we get to reveal our biggest news yet.
 
A huge amount of work is going on behind the scenes to organise an amazing festival, and we are now excited to announce our January 20th concert, Light the Dark. Most excitingly, the centrepiece of this exquisite concert will be the Australian premier of Edward Elgar’s uplifting ‘Light of Life’. 

Conducted by our magnificent musical director, Patrick Burns, Light the Dark will be performed on the evening of Saturday the 20th of January 2018, at the Melbourne Town Hall for an audience of up to two thousand people. 

MIV2018 could not be more excited to be the first people in the country to perform a dramatic and awe-inspiring oratorio described as a "resplendent and moving" piece, filled with "fascinating orchestral and choral passages." We encourage everyone to take a listen below and subscribe to our mailing list to keep up to date with all the exciting announcements.
