The Sydney Opera House will be the venue for some very special classical music concerts next year.

The Sydney Opera House is one of the must-see places for people who are booking flights to Australia.

Just seeing the iconic silhouette rise up over the harbour is enough for some, but during October next year it will also be the venue for some special concerts.

One of the planet’s best conductors Zubin Mehta will be leading the returning Australian World Orchestra through renditions of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring and Mahler’s Symphony No. 1.

The orchestra is an ensemble of Aussie musicians hand-picked from some of the world’s leading classical musical institutions, including the Chicago Symphony, Berlin Philharmonic and Vienna Philharmonic.

Organiser and artistic director of the Australian World Orchestra Alexander Briger believes that if the concerts are anything like last year they will be very memorable occasions.

“We remember the feeling of that first night, when the orchestra walked out and the audience went ballistic. We were in tears,” he explained.
