Symphony of Life

Symphony of Life is the fourth live album released by Australian singer and songwriter Tina Arena on 23 November 2012.[1] The album was filmed and recorded at the Melbourne Arts Centre's Hamer Hall during a series of sold-out concerts for her Australian fans. A DVD of this audio album was also released on the same date with the same cover artwork. Anthony Callea stepped in as special guest for the concert series.[2]


The live record and the DVD was heavily promoted on Arena's official website, Facebook and various online media outlets. Before the record was released, a TV special titled 'Tina Arena: Live in Melbourne' on Foxtel aired at 8:30 PM Saturday 17 November 2012. The same footage from the DVD was shown. Free Tina Arena postcards were given to those who pre-ordered the album prior to the release date.[3][4]
