We regretfully announce that Daniel Hope and Zurich Chamber Orchestra have had to cancel their 2018 Utzon Music Series performance on Sunday 9 September.

From Daniel Hope – “Our baby son has just arrived, over 3 weeks earlier than anticipated. To take care of my family, this means that with great sadness I must withdraw from my only Australian appearance with the Zurich Chamber Orchestra. I am extremely sorry to let you down and I thank you for your understanding. I look forward to returning to Australia at the next possible opportunity.”

If you have any concerns, please call the Sydney Opera House Box Office on 9250 7777.

We apologise for any inconvenience.
