Thank goodness for live music (and the arts generally!), and the privilege of being able to attend a performance, in these still-challenging times.
Sydney Festival offers many excellent ways to start 2021, and take one’s mind away -momentarily- from the myriad concerns around COVID, cancellations and US politics… several Cinque artists feature in the festival with half of the Salon series already sold out, so please book early and bring your mask – all concerts strictly adhering to COVID safety guidelines.
