Autumn–Winter 2023

For a full list of concerts for the year, please visit our What's On page.

It's been wonderful to see the concert hall come alive again with the return of international artists and the recent launch of our new Steinway D-274 piano. This Autumn–Winter 2023 digital release takes us through to the end of July, supplementing our printed Early Release brochure with an additional seven concerts. You'll find all the details of these inside this new brochure, along with a few previously announced concerts for which we still have tickets available.

A highlight of this release is the Leipzig-based a cappella ensemble Sjaella, who are coming to Australia for Hobart's Festival of Voices. We're also particularly excited to present the iconic Australian trio The Necks at UKARIA for the first time. Several of our most popular artists also make a welcome return, including James Crabb, Meow Meow, Paul Grabowsky, Natsuko Yoshimoto, Umberto Clerici, Daniel de Borah, Li-Wei Qin and Kristian Chong.

Tickets are still available for two of our major events this year: the Australian Chamber Orchestra's inaugural UKARIA Festival (3–4 June) and The Relevance of Cultural Tradition – a monumental four-concert weekend (28–30 July) featuring musicians from the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra and the Australian National Academy of Music, curated by Tahlia Petrosian. We do hope you can join us for these special performances.

'There's blue in the sky, and there's blue in the sea,
And a blue mist is veiling the mountains from me.
A blue wren is calling her mate from the bower,
And there is the butterfly over the flower.
There is gold in the sunshine and gold in the sand;
And gold in the poppy I have in my hand.
The golden-red leaves lie thick-strewn on the mould,
For Autumn has come with its blue and its gold.'

– Frida Allen Phillips, The Sydney Morning Herald (26 May 1928)


'In times of silver rain
The earth puts forth new life again,
Green grasses grow
And flowers lift their heads,
And over all the plain
The wonder spreads'

– Langston Hughes (1901–1967)
