Brass Musicians of the Sydney Symphony

Exhilarating and inspiring.

There’s nothing that compares to a bright blast of brass instruments – which is perhaps why Handel chose them for his Music for the Royal Fireworks.

Once in a while, a musical experience comes along that’s exhilarating, theatrical and hugely entertaining. A performance by musicians from the Sydney Symphony’s brass section is all that and more.

In this special event, you’ll hear wonderful music from across the centuries and continents, performed by some of Australia’s most celebrated brass musicians.

It’s a journey that takes you from the Spanish Renaissance with Juan del Encina’s thrilling Three Villancicos to modern day Argentina with Astor Piazzola’s seductive tango music and spectacularly back to England with Handel’s magnificent Music for the Royal Fireworks.
