Make Music Your Legacy
Stuart Challender AO
The late Stuart Challender AO changed the Sydney Symphony Orchestra forever.
He achieved this through a musical dynamism that marked him as one of our nation’s greatest musicians and through his passionate and ambitious planning for the artistic development of the Orchestra.
It was his untimely passing that focused the nation’s attention on his life’s work and allowed us to begin measuring his extraordinary legacy.
Stuart Challender’s vision has continued to inspire us – even though it is thirty years since his last performance and final encores. Today, Stuart’s vision powers our artistic aspirations and dedicates us to nurturing the next generation of musicians and audiences.
