We are delighted to welcome you to our 2019 artistic program of City Recital Hall Presents events for January to March.

2019 will see the return of our popular free community programs including The Exhibition Project, in which our foyers are enlivened with contemporary visual art, and the now legendary Sydney Flash Mob Choir. Both of our popular lunchtime series, A Little Lunch Music and This Sounds Like Science, will also continue next year with new faces and returning favourites.

On our mainstage we bring one of the world's most renowned choirs, The Sixteen, to Sydney and are excited to this year be presenting two events as part of Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.

2019 marks the 20th year of the venue and to begin the celebration we are running a special City Recital Hall Membership offer from now until the end of this year. Read on and explore our City Recital Hall 2019 summer program.
