The health and safety of our audience members, staff and musicians is top priority.

Willoughby City Council has made the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of the Willoughby Symphony's 2020 season. Ticket holders will be contacted. 

It is a decision that we have not taken lightly and it is disappointing for us, our musicians and you, our supporters.

Thank you for your continued support during what is an incredibly challenging time for the arts across Australia.

We remain committed to both enriching the life of this city and region through music.

One of Australia’s most exciting young chamber groups, the Estivo Trio (violinist Fox Chan, cellist Jonathan Békês and pianist Ying Ho) joins Dr Nicholas Milton AM and the Willoughby Symphony Orchestra in November for Beethoven’s innovative Triple Concerto. Scored for piano trio and orchestra – a combination unprecedented in music history – Beethoven wrote the Concerto alongside his famous Eroica Symphony, possibly to show off the skills of his young student and future patron, Archduke Rudolph.

Jean Sibelius wrote his rousing Finlandia as a covert protest against Russian rule in his home country, before it went on to make the composer an international star. The Willoughby Symphony Orchestra performs this iconic Finnish work alongside the work of another composer who found inspiration in his native land, the Czech master melodist Antonìn Dvořák. His Seventh Symphony is thought by many to be his greatest, surpassing even his famous Ninth, From the New World.
