Celebrate spring with the ACO as we return to the beautiful setting of MacLaurin Hall at the University of Sydney for this year’s Sydney Fundraising Gala, Château des fleurs.

Start the evening with a glass of champagne on the university lawns in the glittering evening sunshine before Richard Tognetti and the ACO entertain you with a dazzling performance. Celebrity chef Luke Mangan will prepare a sumptuous feast fit for the occasion while you bid on fabulous live and silent auction items under the expert guidance of auctioneer Justin Miller.

Funds raised from the event support the ACO’s Education Program, which provides outstanding musical experiences to financially and geographically disadvantaged students across Australia. As a result of funds raised at last year's gala dinner we have been able to expand our Picton Strings program and our primary schools programs in Matraville, Waterloo and Little Bay, as well as our regional schools program and our workshops for children with disabilities. We have also been able to launch an important program for disadvantaged children in Sunshine, Victoria.
