The Sydney Symphony Orchestra performs opening concert at the Sydney Coliseum Theatre, West HQ

In collaboration with Australian artist David Campbell, the Sydney Symphony will perform the opening concert of the newly built Sydney Coliseum Theatre, West HQ with a festive themed concert.

The holiday season inspired program David Campbell with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra: Christmas at the Coliseum (12-13 Dec) marks the start of a two-year partnership between the two organisations. The Sydney Symphony will continue to perform several concerts at the Sydney Coliseum Theatre, West HQ over 2020, continuing to share music with broader communities.

“The Sydney Symphony has been performing in Greater Western Sydney and touring New South Wales for more than 87 years, and we are so excited to be taking this next step in bringing the best of orchestral music to more music-lovers at West HQ,” said CEO Emma Dunch.

“Together with the multi-talented David Campbell, conductor Nicholas Buc and the musicians of Orchestra, this inaugural performance signals a new era for music in Greater Western Sydney. West HQ will be a place to gather and celebrate the very best of the nation’s thriving arts and culture scene, and we are delighted to start the next chapter of our public service at this magnificent venue!”

The inaugural performance will feature festive favourites including Silent Night, Sleigh Bells and Santa Claus is Coming to Town, as well as showcase of songs from Campbell’s album Baby It’s Christmas, including the titular track, Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree and When My Heart Finds Christmas.

In 2020, the Sydney Symphony’s performances at the Sydney Coliseum Theatre, West HQ will also feature works from the classical repertoire, drawn from the 2020 concert season in central Sydney and feature the same internationally renowned artists and conductors; chamber music concerts and scores performed live to film round out the first year of the partnership.
