Cancelled & Rescheduled Concerts

UPDATED 7 AUGUST 2020

For the first time in almost ninety years the Sydney Symphony has fallen silent.

Our performance schedule has been impacted significantly, and we regret that the majority of our concerts have been cancelled or rescheduled.

Many of our community have donated their tickets back to the Orchestra and we are deeply humbled by your generosity and grateful for your expressions of support. With your help we can continue as a community of musicians and play another day.

Rescheduled Concerts

If your concert has been rescheduled your tickets will be valid for any of the rescheduled performances.

Your seat will be maintained if you choose to attend on your original choice of day. If you are unable to attend a rescheduled performance, please consider donating your tickets. Refunds are also available. Whichever option you choose, there will be no additional fees and charges.

7–9 May 2020: Birds of Tokyo. Rescheduled to 4–6 February 2021

Cancelled Concerts

If your concert has been cancelled your Sydney Symphony account has already been credited.

Please consider donating the value of your tickets to help keep the Sydney Symphony alive. You can also use any credit towards later concerts, your subscription renewal or merchandise. If you are unable to donate or choose another concert, refunds are also available. Whichever option you choose, there will be no additional fees and charges.
