Venue Details

The Verbrugghen Hall in the Sydney Conservatorium of Music will once again be the home of The Sydney’s Preliminary and Semi Final rounds. It will also be the venue for the Gala Opening Night Concert.
Sydney Town Hall will be the host venue for the Finals. The Concert Hall at the Sydney Opera House will be closed for refurbishment in 2020.*
*Please note the seating capacity is smaller in the Sydney Town Hall and therefore tickets will be in high demand for all four final concerts.
