Sydney Gala Event

Sounds of the Cinema

2015 Sydney Fundraising Gala

Presented by Maserati

Thursday 26 November

Sydney Town Hall


Our annual Sydney Fundraising Gala, Sounds of the Cinema, presented by Maserati, took place on Thursday 26 November. Over 350 guests joined us at Sydney Town Hall to celebrate the ACO’s 40th Birthday, and to raise money for our National Education Program, which celebrated 10 years in 2015.

Chris Taylor from The Chaser entertained guests as Master of Ceremonies and guests were treated to perfectly cooked Beef Wellington by Guillaume Brahimi before bidding on an incredible array of luxury items in the auction and taking part in the Georg Jensen raffle.

A highlight of the evening was a special cinematic performance by Richard Tognetti and the ACO, joined by the students from the Penrith Strings Program—one of the programs for which the event raises money.

The event raised over $575,000 for our National Education Program—a record result!
