Something exciting is always happening in Sydney’s art scene. Here are some of the Visual and Performing arts happening in Sydney in August this year.

Mozart’s Symphony No.29 at the Sydney Opera House – 16th Aug

“Music, even in situations of the greatest horror, should never be painful to the ear but should flatter and charm it, and thereby always remain music.” – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Composed by Mozart when he was only 18, Symphony No. 29  has a magnetic appeal that is authentically Mozartian and speaks the young man’s emerging compositional self-confidence and that led him to the opera houses from his own chamber.

Mozart bequeathed wind players some of their most charming and expressive music – think of those delightful concertos for oboe, clarinet, horn and bassoon. That team assembles for an irresistibly winsome quartet-concerto.

Tickets start at $45.
