Music to Your Ears at Opera House Festival

From June 27th to July 4th, the Australian International Music Festival hits Sydney. Now in its 26th year, the Festival is one of NSW’s favourite ear ringing events. With up to 1300 participants annually, the festival hits Sydney alongside touring Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and Cuba. The groups performing include Aussie natives, China, Singapore and Japan so the eclectic style is diverse and culturally inspiring.
Even though there are a multitude of music styles on stage, the focus magnifies wind bands, choirs, jazz and orchestra. If you’ve never experienced an event at the Opera House, you’re in for a serious treat! Not only is this our adored choice of venue, but you can also check out the other music events taking place at the Angel Palace (City Recital Hall) and Darling Harbour. 

It’s not just a ‘perch your rear and watch’ festival…you can also be involved in the workshops and cultural exchanges. So if you’re a budding musician or lover of great sounds, you can dually share passions and insights with some of these leading performers.

Over the seven days, there will also be a flurry of awards by the festival jury including Gold, Silver or Bronze plaques at the concert performances. This is alongside the Showcase Award category for groups that prefer to abstain from competing.  More information about the Australian International Music Festival Awards, including band submission details, is featured on this link. It also showcases the full rundown of event activities, workshops, outdoor pops concert and band rehearsal exchanges. 

Prices for the Sydney Opera House tickets are $33 for standard submission for June 27th – 29th and performances run for 3 hours including a one 30 minute interval. 

Since Cremorne Point Manor is located just a short ferry ride from the Opera House, you can dance your way back to our Sydney boutique hotel in under 10 minutes. Overlooking the Harbour and stunning skyline, check out our home page short video. It’ll make your heart skip a great beat!
