Welcome to our 2020 Season


Music doesn’t get more thrilling and moving than through the live performance from a 100-strong orchestra and the guest artists who join us from across the world.

That’s the power of the music we share – it brings everyone together.

We are thrilled to perform for you in 2020. Join us and experience a historic year of brilliant music.

A Monumental Season

This is a season of wonderful experiences, featuring landmark works and an international roster of conductors.

Donald Runnicles, our Principal Guest Conductor, conducts Mahler’s sublime Fourth Symphony, Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis and a sparkling celebration of opera – the Italian Opera Gala, and Simone Young conducts performances of Beethoven, Brahms and A Viennese Gala celebrating the greatest of waltz music.



A New Symphonic Acoustic

Hear us like you’ve rarely heard us before. Our home for the next two seasons is Sydney Town Hall, which is one of the world’s best acoustic venues.

The sound is immersive, rich, dynamic and brilliantly blended – experience symphonic masterpieces in a whole new way.
