Season Preview: Your guide to the arts in 2024

According to Artistic Director Brett Weymark, Sydney Philharmonia Choirs’ 2024 season is “a season of contrast”.

“It’s a season … programmed through the lens of now, while at the same time paying attention to recurring themes addressing the modern world and our place in it; by drawing from the great canon of musical works, those prescient compositions whose messages we should well heed today,” he said.

From a celebration of Italian Baroque to Broadway classics and Rachmaninov from the comfort of a yoga mat, Weymark promises “something for everyone” in the Choirs’ 104th season.

The year kicks off at Sydney Festival, with artists from the Choirs offering the World Premiere program Night Songs at Coney Island, featuring Peter Coleman-Wright and Cheryl Barker and works by Poulenc, Mahler Stravinsky and Elgar.
