Sydney Symphony Family Concert Opener Presents Pictures At An Exhibition In Music And Mime


Modest Mussorgsky’s evocative orchestral work, Pictures at an Exhibition is the centrepiece of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra’s first Family Event for the 2019 Season. Led by conductor Benjamin Northey, the orchestra and mime artist Andy Dexterity will bring to life the vivid images of this magnificent piece.

Pictures at an Exhibition marks the start of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra’s Family Event concerts for the year, a series of three programs curated for audience aged five and up and designed to engage young minds with music. In 2019, the Sydney Symphony has doubled the number of Family Events and reduced ticket prices to $25, ensuring that more children and their families can join us for these special concerts for young audiences.

Over the year, the 2019 Family Event concert series will also include a program of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons (13 October), featuring Concertmaster Andrew Haveron performing alongside 10-year-old violinist Christian Li. On 10 November, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra will present The Composer is Dead, composed by Nathaniel Stookey with text by author Lemony Snicket. In an entertaining whodunit-style format, the audience assists an inspector in solving a mystery with the orchestra.

At Family Events, children are invited to immerse themselves in music through interactive learning activities in the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall foyer, giving them the opportunity to connect directly with music and enhance their experience.

All tickets: $25
