Sydney Symphony

Conductor: Brett Weymark

Featured conductor: Nathan Aspinall 

Balmy nights and beautiful music: THE Sydney Festival picnic tradition.

Our annual free concerts in The Domain are amongst the Festival's most anticipated events.

Join thousands of Sydneysiders and visitors to the city as we pull out the picnic rug and welcome the good times - all for free.

Experience classical music under the summer stars, with performances by a new generation of soloists, together with the Sydney Symphony.

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.

Young Queensland conductor Nathan Aspinall will take to the podium with Strauss' Blue Danube.

Add the traditional concert climax, Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture, and Sydney is in for a wondrous night of classical power.
