Sydney's Amphibious will entertain you from 5:15pm with their contemporary spin on classical music, playing electric cello, tenor sax, bass clarinet, guitar and drums.
Soulful saxophonist Nicholas Russoniello, winner of the 2011 ABC Symphony Australia Young Performers Award, plays Yoshimatsu's beautiful concerto Cyber-bird.
Bruch's famous Violin Concerto in G minor is played by the outstanding young violinist Emily Sun, who has worked with orchestras across Australia and Asia since the age of ten. She recently starred in the inspirational film Mrs Carey's Concert.
