Vanguard: the Sydney Symphony... but different

The Sydney Symphony and Vanguard Collective wish to advise that all public activities for Vanguard have been postponed. We will announce new dates when it is safe for us to gather at venues once more.

If you are a Vanguard member and would like more information about your membership (which has been extended through this period) or upcoming virtual events, please contact:

Patricia Laksmono, External Affairs Officer
Phone: 02 8215 4695

Please keep safe and well and let's play another day.

Sydney Symphony Vanguard is a unique way to demonstrate your commitment to supporting a secure future for orchestral music and live performance.

A membership program for the musically curious, Vanguard is your ticket to join the Sydney Symphony community. You’ll meet like-minded and passionate music lovers and you will play a key role in supporting a range of special projects that ensure the Sydney Symphony continues to grow as the nation’s leading community of musicians.

Your annual membership fee of $750* will give you access to all Vanguard events throughout the year and you are entitled to bring a friend to each event.
