The Sydney Symphony is an orchestra of 93 full-time professional musicians who perform music of all styles from the 18th century to music composed yesterday. Our range embraces the concert hall hits of Classical and Romantic periods, modern masterpieces and exciting collaborations that cross genres.

Throughout the season, top conductors, soloists and ensembles from all over the world come to Sydney to make music with the orchestra.
