Three emerging violinists experience a dream come true – performing Bach’s extraordinary Double Concerto at the Sydney Opera House, alongside star violinist Ray Chen.

Ever dreamed of performing on the stage of the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall?

Presented by the Sydney Symphony and Ray Chen, Play with Ray will make that dream a reality for three emerging violinists.

Together, they’ll perform Bach’s extraordinary and dramatic Concerto for Two Violins, with each violinist featuring in one movement alongside Ray Chen. Bach’s beautiful interweaving melodies and cascading passages will allow each violinist their moment to shine.

Ray Chen will also dazzle audiences as soloist in The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, which blends tango-inspired melodies by Piazzolla with influences of Vivaldi’s famous Four Seasons. Alongside arrangements of favourite tunes for violin and orchestra, this concert is sure to be a dazzling experience for anyone who loves the violin.

A free livestream of this performance will be available on Stream from 7pm, 25 July.
