Concerto Competition COVID Update

As many of you would now be aware, new COVID-19 restrictions have been introduced in Greater Sydney. As a result, necessary changes have been made to the format of this year's Concerto Competition.

The orchestra will be limited to 37 people on stage, in order to comply with the new 4 sq. m. rule. Ticketing for the audience will be changed from allocated seating to general admission, so that audience members can socially distance. Audience capacity will be reduced.

If you haven't yet secured your place at The Concourse, we are delighted to be able to offer you the opportunity to watch the extraordinary talent on display at the Concerto Competition Finals Concert via live steam, courtesy of the Melbourne Digital Concert Hall.

Tickets for attending the live stream are available for $24, and will allow you to watch the concert either live or for up to 72 hours after the concert has started. To secure your tickets, please click here:

Friends of the KPO are an exclusive "inner circle" who support the Orchestra and introduce the KPO to the wider community. In return, they receive a range of privileges - including being able to attend free Sunday afternoon chamber concerts. Read More

The KPO is a truly community-based orchestra.

A modest grant from Ku-ring-gai Council contributes less than 10% of the Orchestra’s annual income; no on-going financial support is received from the State or Federal governments. So each year more than 90% of the Orchestra’s funding must be sourced from ticket sales, from the support of many individuals and from community-minded companies.

Donations to KPO will help support the creation of music for young audiences, talented young soloists, the community of Ku-ring-gai and you, if you come to our concerts or play in the orchestra…. Read More
