Classical music under the stars in the Domain.
It wouldn’t be summer in Sydney without Symphony in The Domain. Celebrate our 40th by bringing a hamper, a blanket and your friends – all dressed in ruby – and settle in for a free concert under the stars. This year the Sydney Symphony Orchestra is doing something special for our birthday; they’ve gathered a repertoire of music performed at Symphony in The Domain over the years to astound us with a ‘best of’ musical journey, with everything from Mendelssohn to Dvořák and Tchaikovskyy and a special appearance by Sydney Philharmonia Choirs.
Best of all, Symphony in the Domain is free! Just find a patch of grass and get comfortable for an evening of delightful music.
It’s our ruby anniversary! Prizes will be awarded for the best-dressed ruby coloured picnic and punter.
