COVID-19 UPDATE

As a result of the Government announcement on March 17th that mass gatherings of 100 or more people are banned, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel our upcoming concerts:

  • St John Passion on 11 April
  • Elijah on 9 May
  • Centenary Celebration on 20 June

This step is taken with great regret and unfortunately we will not be able to reschedule these concerts in 2020. While this is deeply disappointing for all involved, the well-being of our choristers, staff, collaborators and broader community is the most important consideration.

All rehearsals for Sydney Philharmonia Choirs have been postponed indefinitely. We will re-assess our schedule each week on the basis of Government advice and our unique situation, and will continue to keep our singers well-being in mind.

If you are a current ticket holder of either St John, Elijah or our Centenary Celebration please take note of the below guidelines regarding your purchase.

You are entitled to a refund, but as a valued member of the Sydney Philharmonia community we are asking you to consider converting your ticket to a tax-deductible donation to support us during this difficult time. Ticketing income provides us with 50% of our revenue and as such we are preparing for some challenging times ahead. We are asking for your support at this time.

Please find your ticket options below:
1. Convert your ticket to a tax deductible donation to Sydney Philharmonia Choirs. A tax receipt will be issued.
2. Receive a credit note for the ticket value to put towards another Sydney Philharmonia event over the next 24 months.
3. A refund of the ticket value.

Thank you for your ongoing support of Sydney Philharmonia Choirs. We have been heartened by the many kind emails and well-wishes we have received these past few days. We will be back presenting beautiful music for the people of Sydney as soon as we can.
