Featuring stunning stained glass windows, intricate tile and brilliant brasswork, as well as a star-studded ceiling, The Great Synagogue is the architectural crown of Australia’s Jewish community. It is also a national treasure and in 2022 it welcomed the public to experience its grandeur with a series of sensational Live at the Great concerts that were both innovative and intimate.
In good news, Live at The Great continues in 2023 with a lineup of internationally acclaimed and award-winning musicians. From geniuses of their genre to masters of their instruments, talent will resonate throughout the main sanctuary for what are bound to be extraordinary nights of live music. A number of these virtuosos will also be performing together for the very first time—not just in Australia, but anywhere in the world.
Musicians to perform at Live at The Great include the Grigoryan brothers, Alexander Gavrylyuk, James Morrison, Konstantin Shamray, Andrew Haveron, Vladimir Gorbach as well as Stefanie Farrands, Kristian Winther and Umberto Clerici. Among others, they will be performing the music of Piazzolla, Mussorgsky and Brahms as well as gypsy-inspired scores, jazz classics and a program spanning three centuries, from baroque to bossa nova.
Take a seat on the cedar pews and feel the music, the stories and the “warm yet resonant acoustics” of The Great transport you across the ages through sound.
