Longing to spend your lunch hour device-free and served with a slice of serenity?

Drop in for City Recital Hall’s long running series of lunchtime concerts, A Little Lunch Music. Each concert is an hour of musical escapism performed by some of Australia’s best artists. Take your pick from one (or all!) of 12 events in 2019, and return to the rest of your day feeling uplifted and inspired.

Russell Torrance is well-known as the presenter on ABC Sydney’s Classic Breakfast show. He is also a classically trained musician and keeps the tuba close to his heart. He has performed in venues across Australia and Europe, most notably London’s Barbican Centre and Manchester’s Royal Northern College of Music. He is known to musicians as ‘The Scotsman with the loud laugh and the big tuba!’

For this A Little Lunch Music event Russell will be exploring the music that has influenced him most in his life, from when he was a young boy listening to local military bands, to his years at the University of Nottingham and all the way through his long and eventful career in commercial radio and now at the ABC. Performances by Sydney Brass, Anna Da Silva Chen and Juliette Di Bello will accompany his talk.

Feel free to bring your lunch into the auditorium. Our Lobby Bar is stocked with a range of light meal options or you can BYO.
