This much-loved chamber music program continues in 2022, showcasing ensembles and soloists from July to October 2022 in the exquisite and intimate Utzon Room – the only performance venue in the Opera House entirely designed by architect Jørn Utzon.

Join ACO Principal Violin Helena Rathbone and Friends for an exceptional program that heroes the piano quartet; discover the voice of lyric coloratura soprano Alexandra Flood in recital with pianist Konstantin Shamray; take a journey with Iraqi American Oud player Rahim AlHaj, performing with percussion and string quintet; and be inspired by the genius of American pianist Jonathan Biss performing Berg, Schumann and Schubert in a stunning solo recital. 

We look forward to welcoming you to the Utzon Room for more unforgettable, close-up classical experiences.


The exquisite Australian soprano Alexandra Flood is joined in recital by concert pianist Konstantin Shamray, who demonstrates fearless command of the piano.
