Enjoy a remarkable evening of Mozart and Schubert with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and opera star Emma Matthews, performing for one special night at The Joan on 31 May at 7.30pm.

Over almost nine decades, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra has evolved into Australia’s leading symphony orchestra. Resident at the Sydney Opera House, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra also performs regularly across New South Wales, presenting a wide array of music – from classical to popular – in collaboration with artists and composers from around the globe.

On 31 May, The Joan’s Concert Hall will come alive with the sound of the Symphony - violins, cellos and double basses at the core, to the twinkling sounds of harp and flutes and the resounding vibrancy of horns and percussion. All come together to form an exquisite musical repertoire for the evening which features Schubert’s lyrical Rosamunde music and his sparkling Symphony No. 3, as well as Mozart’s jewel-like arias.

The concert will also feature Opera star Emma Matthews as a special guest. As one of Australia’s most beloved performers and one of opera’s brightest stars, her versatility, charisma and exquisite coloratura soprano are the perfect fit for these iconic classical pieces – a treat for any opera lover.
