The Sydney Symphony Orchestra continues its commitment to providing regional communities with access to music through its latest partnership with the Sydney Coliseum Theatre at West HQ, Rooty Hill.

Launching a three-year residency, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra will share the best of live orchestral music with the Greater Western Sydney community. Kicking off in December 2019, musicians of the orchestra will feature alongside Australian artist David Campbell in festive-themed performances as part of the venue’s opening week.

Other performances at the Sydney Coliseum Theatre will include live symphonic favourites of the classical repertoire with internationally renowned guest conductors and artists, new ways to experience blockbuster movies with live orchestra, and special concerts featuring great Australian artists.

The Sydney Symphony Orchestra has an extensive history of sharing music with regional communities, performing in Greater Western Sydney and touring New South Wales for more than 81 years. The partnership with the Sydney Coliseum Theatre recognises and celebrates the thriving arts and culture scene, and continues the orchestra’s dedication to sharing experiences with music-lovers in this part of Sydney.

Through a partnership established in 2018 with the State Library of New South Wales, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra has now livestreamed six concerts from the Sydney Opera House to regional libraries and conservatoria across the state, bringing communities the opportunity to experience music of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra at the same time it is experienced by audiences in the Concert Hall.

In 2020, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra will double its regional performances, and bring its popular Family Events – concerts designed to engage young minds in music – to Chatswood Concourse.
