Conducted by the esteemed Elizabeth Scott (Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Sydney Philharmonia Choirs), an amassed orchestra of young musicians hailing from Sydney Youth Orchestras, the NSW Regional Youth Orchestra and Sydney Conservatorium of Music will combine to learn, connect and play together.

The program will feature compositions that celebrate the rich history of British repertoire, and will showcase some orchestral favourites for stage and film. Whether you’re a diehard fan classical music fan, or a total newcomer, this momentous event in the Concert Hall will be one to remember.
