We didn't know anything about the SSO beforehand. We were in Sydney, so at the last minute, we decided to attend a concert of Sibelius and Mahler. What beautiful music! As we got two of the last seats available, these were "below stage" tickets. Basically...More

Booked on-line tickets well in advance to "Symphony, Suite and Slides - Rachmaninoff's Third". During our tour of Australia and New Zealand we didn't just want to see the Opera House from outside, but rather experience the full effect of a concert or musical event....More

Listening to the SSO playing the mammoth Mahler Symphony No.2 last night under the baton of Maestro David Robertson reinforced my long held view that here in Sydney we have much more than a very good orchestra. We truly have a great one. The strings...More

We went to see the Sydney Symphony at the opera house concert hall and had a wonderful evening. They were equally adept at both supporting the soloist and playing orchestral pieces. Wonderful.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
