Emirates Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa is pleased to announce that following the hugely successful inaugural event in March 2013, Symphony Under the Stars with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra will return to the luxury conservation-based resort  in March 2014.

Exclusively for one weekend only, the sounds of superb classical music will sweep across the valley as world-class musicians present chamber music performances from Friday evening on March 7 until mid-morning on Sunday, March 9, 2014.

From violins to trumpets, the music will span across the centuries. Guests will be captivated by four intimate concerts set against the spectacular backdrop of Wolgan Valley with its dramatic escarpments and magnificent starlit sky.

SSO managing director Rory Jeffes said the weekend represented a chance for guests to hear 15 of Australia’s best classical musicians in performance in the intimate setting of the stunning Wolgan Valley resort.

“We are immensely proud of our long-standing partnership with Emirates and now to have an event which links the excellence of the SSO musicians with the excellence of Emirates Wolgan Valley makes this weekend a major highlight of Australia’s cultural calendar and something not to be missed.’’

Emirates Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa general manager Joost Heymeijer said: “Emirates has enjoyed a wonderful partnership of eleven years with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and we are honoured to have these very talented musicians return to Wolgan a second time. It is both a thrill and a privilege to witness their skill within such close proximity.

“Symphony Under the Stars is set to pave the way for an exciting calendar of events that we are planning for 2014 which will celebrate music, art, photography as well as local food and wine.’’
