The Sydney Symphony Orchestra has several programmes throughout the year. One of them is “Tea & Symphony” held on eight Fridays per year at Sydney Opera House. Complimentary tea begins in the foyer at 10:00am and the concert starts at 11:00am in the Concert Hall. Once a year I go to Sydney to catch up with my old friend and... More

We were delighted to see Enigma Variations at the Sydney Symphony Orchestra with David Robertson as Chief Conductor and Artistic Director. The music in that amazing structure was absolutely splendid!!! A very memorable evening!

Had never heard this orchestra before, but wanted to see the Concert Hall. Very easy to book tickets on the Internet & it doesn't matter where you sit as the sightlines are excellent. They were extremely good with a great programme (usually Friday & Monday evenings & Saturday afternoon. Only gave it 4 stars as we were put off by... More

Went to see the Sydney Symphony take on Sci-Fi Classics- from the big movie numbers to the new Doctor Who theme, was a truly excellent experience in the surroundings of the Opera House. Conductor was good humoured and kept things flying along, hardly felt like we were there for 10 minutes, but 2 full hours of music had passed by.... More

We were lucky to get 2 very good seats for the "Symphonic Insperation" conducted by David Robertson. Very enjoyable music, great ambiance, a once in your lifetime must to visit a concert at Sydney Opera House. We enjoyed ourselves very much.

Just rated as the best orchestra in Australia. I have been listening for many years and have watched the standard steadily improve. At their best they are very good indeed.

Listening to the SSO at the Opera House is always a pleasure. They perform a wide range of pieces, have lovely guests and provide a relaxing atmosphere to enjoy music in

I took my kids to the matinee performance of Pixar in Concert at the Concert Hall Sydney Opera House. It was a very emotional and wonderful experience. I'd go again in a heartbeat. We sat in a Platform Box D overlooking the Orchestra. The kids could see each of the musicians playing which was ideal, although it might have been... More
