11.00am - “Organ Splendour” – a recital by David Drury



*SSO PERFORMANCE RESCHEDULED*

The Sydney Symphony's performance of Organ Splendour tomorrow morning (Friday 12 June) at the Sydney Opera House has been rescheduled to Friday 3 July at 11.00am due to abnormally low humidity and cool conditions in Sydney in the recent week, which has meant the grand organ in The Concert Hall is not reliably playable.

The organ in the Sydney Opera House is the largest mechanical action organ in the world, with more than 10,000 pipes.

“The Sydney Symphony is extremely disappointed that tomorrow’s organ recital by acclaimed Australian musician David Drury has had to be postponed. Unfortunately we were informed today that the Organ is not functioning to a level that would allow the performance to occur. We ask that patrons who were going to attend the performance hold on to their tickets and join us for the re-scheduled concert on Friday 3 July at 11am at the Sydney Opera House concert hall. We are very sorry for the inevitable inconvenience this will cause to our audience” said Rory Jeffes, Sydney Symphony Managing Director.
