City Recital Hall was officially opened on 30 October 1999. It was the first purpose-built music venue to be established in Sydney since the Sydney Opera House in 1973.

This year, we celebrate the 20th anniversary of City Recital Hall, a venue that has come to be loved by performers and audiences alike. 

We'd love to celebrate this milestone with you. Join us as we dive through the archives, meet with old friends, and reflect on the cultural impact that the building has made in Sydney, and for all of its visitors. 

On the anniversary of the building's opening, we will host an Open Day for the public to explore the venue inside out, and an evening gala to propel us into a future of more vibrant, diverse and inclusive program of concerts and events at City Recital Hall. 

Stay tuned for more.
