Sydney Symphony Orchestra presents Family Concerts

Three brilliant and inspiring concerts for 5–12 year olds to share with their families. Available as one Pre-Designed Package on Sunday 2pm at the Sydney Opera House. Our first one is scheduled this Sunday 11th March 'Who Needs a Conductor Anyway?'

Australian pianist Simon Tedeschi teams up with the SSO for a rollercoaster ride through the great piano concertos. Now, where did we put the conductor?

What happens if there’s no conductor? Isn’t a solo pianist enough? Why can’t everyone just play how they like? (And seriously, how hard can conducting be, anyway?) Celebrated Australian pianist Simon Tedeschi actually has no idea, but with the musicians of the SSO and some of the most famous concertos in the repertoire, he’ll put these and other questions to the test.

A captivating concert for curious minds and ears.
