It wouldn’t be summer in Sydney without Symphony Under The Stars. In 2017 we present the much-anticipated performance in The Crescent in the beautiful Parramatta Park, along with a performance in The Domain.

Conducted by Jessica Cottis, Sydney Symphony Orchestra will play a series of popular classics and conclude with the traditional grand finale: Tchaikovsky’s rousing 1812 Overture, complete with cannon fire!

A group of talented young Western Sydney musicians will also take to Parramatta Park’s Crescent Live stage for a special pre-concert performance, at 6.30pm. This 18 piece string ensemble and vocalist will perform a high-energy repertoire of contemporary hits such as SIA’s Chandelier as well as traditional Latin American and Irish scores.

Bring a blanket, your friends and a hamper – or treat yourself to a great selection of food and drinks from on-site food trucks and stalls such as Sofrito, Monster Rolls, Let’s Do Yum Cha, Trinhy’s, Stroop Bros and The Crescent Live Bar.

The up-and-coming Western Sydney musicians will perform on The Crescent Live stage with the support of Parramatta Park Trust through Arts NSW.

Make a night of it with a Festival Feast meal for $30 per person at The Emporium or El-Phoenician restaurant.
