Utzon Music Series

“At its very core the Utzon Music Series has a simple philosophy. We aren’t trying to be too clever or create new perspectives. We aren’t trying to traverse the breadth of Western art music. And, even though many international stars make their Australian debut in this venue, we aren’t looking for firsts. This Series is about brilliant musicians playing proven repertoire which reflects the quality and beauty of Sydney Opera House". Yarmila Alfonzetti, Curator, Utzon Music Series

Join Freddy Kempf in an intimate concert before the Masterclass as he performs Prokofiev , Kapustin and Rachmaninoff. Find out more.
