Sydney Symphony Under the Stars — one of Sydney Festival’s most adored programmes is returning next month. The outdoor event sees some of the best classical musicians take to the stage for an evening of everything from symphonic classics to the epic finale of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture. Also on the program are some iconic film scores over the years, think everything from Star Wars to ET.
Sydney Symphony Under the Stars
Initially set to take place earlier this year as part of Sydney Festival’s mammoth line-up, the event was postponed due to the ballooning covid situation in the city. The event is now gearing up to make a huge comeback next month at the familiar location of Parramatta Park. Led by celebrated conductor Benjamin Northey, this years event is special since it marks the Sydney Symphony Orchestra’s 90th anniversary.
On the program are the all-time greats like Dvořák and Mozart along with an ode to John Williams film classics from ET to Indiana Jones.
As is tradition, the event is completely free and unticketed. Grab your mates, a bottle or two of bubbly and a picnic basket and make your way to the park on March 26. Even better since Autumn nearly upon us.
Find all the details at the Sydney Festival website and set a reminder so you don’t miss the spectacular evening.
Sydney Symphony Under the Stars will take place on Saturday, March 26 at Parramatta Park from 7pm onwards.
