Rodgers & Hammerstein: Showstoppers

This event takes place off site at Sydney Town Hall

Sydney Philharmonia Choirs

Classical Music

A wonderful concert of a toe-tapping rhythms, witty lyrics and soaring melodies from the great musicals of Rogers and Hammerstein that will have you singing along and cheering for encores.   

Please note: this event is not held at the Sydney Opera House.


One of the highlights of 2023 was Sydney Philharmonia Choirs’ Golden Age of Broadway concert with their Symphony Chorus – an irresistible evening of toe-tapping tunes and sheer entertainment that sent everyone home with smiles to ‘make the world worthwhile’. And they’re back in 2024 with a celebration of Rodgers and Hammerstein showstoppers. 

We’ve got this beautiful feelin’ that Brett Weymark is planning something wonderful with rousing choruses and fabulous musical moments from R&H musicals that have stood the test of time to become classics – plus some rare treats from the ‘backstage comedy’ Me and Juliet and the 1945 film State Fair. And we know he’ll be spoilt for choice with all the memorable melodies, witty lyrics and touching themes that emerged from this legendary musical theatre partnership.

You’ll be singing along and cheering for encores. 

Presented by Sydney Philharmonia Choirs
