Imposing words for any conductor to wrestle with.

But with the prodigious Australian Dane Lam holding the baton, the French composer’s legacy is in deft hands.

Better known as the Organ Symphony for its unusual – yet spectacular – use of the instrument, it seems only fitting we hear it on one of the largest organs of its kind in the world.

SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY

The Sydney Symphony will continue to apply NSW Public Health Orders as they relate to ticketing and seating arrangements. As these Orders can change at very short notice, we will be allocating seats closer in time to concert dates than we have in previous seasons. This will allow us to maintain a COVID-19 safe environment.
