The starlit summer concert you love is back with a soaring new program to lift this park picnic into the stratosphere.
This year, Sydney Symphony Under the Stars: Pictures in the Sky will showcase the didgeridoo magic of William Barton, joined by Aunty Delmae Barton, Véronique Serret and Iva Davies AM , and the transportative sitar playing of Anoushka Shankar. All in collaboration with Sydney Symphony Orchestra and guest conductor Benjamin Northey, who will bring it home with traditional classics and a big sparkly bang.
