Sydney Philharmonia Choirs

Season 2024

Sydney Philharmonia Choirs' 2024 Season is open! As Artistic Director Brett Weymark OAM says, “Everyone’s taste is different, so in 2024 – our 104th season – there’s something for everyone.”

From expressive Baroque gems to the Romantic drama of Mendelssohn’s Elijah with star baritone Teddy Tahu Rhodes, to the Showstoppers of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s best loved musicals, it’s a season for all to enjoy.  

ChorusOz returns with Karl Jenkin’s impassioned The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace – open for everyone to sing in on the Concert Hall stage, or enjoy from the seats. 

And there’s all-time favourites: Beethoven’s Ode to Joy, Rachmaninoff’s Vespers and the end-of-year high note, Handel’s Messiah. Hallelujah! 

Find your voice, your energy and your joy in the Choirs’ 2024 season.
