An Australian exclusive and in partnership with Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and CHARINDAA, Arts Centre Melbourne presents The Music of AR Rahman – a one night gala concert event at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl on Thursday 16 February 2017 performed by Melbourne Symphony Orchestra with the superstar himself as special guest performer.

Described as the world’s most prominent and prolific film composer by Time Magazine, AR Rahman is an Indian composer, singer, songwriter, record producer, musician, and philanthropist.

He has also become a notable humanitarian and philanthropist, donating and raising money for beneficial causes and supporting numerous charities.
