As with all Arts companies in Australia, The Metropolitan Orchestra (TMO) were absolutely hammered as a direct result of the Covid Pandemic. The 2020 and 2021 seasons saw us deliver only 11 events with the vast majority of our planned performances cancelled. Now in our fourteenth year under the direction of brilliant founding Artistic Director & Chief Conductor Sarah-Grace Williams, TMO continues to build on our strong reputation as one of Sydney’s most vibrant, accessible and flexible privately run orchestras. We are proud to be a not-for-profit organization and a registered charity and one of the country’s leading non state-funded, full-sized orchestras.
Our 2022 Fundraiser is now live. Support your favourite musical charity. Any financial assistance you can provide will make a huge difference to our sustainability and ability to continue delivering a wide-range of exceptional music to all family members from toddlers all the way to music loving grand parents.

Now more than ever, we need the commitment and passion of our supporters and lovers of exceptional music. We do not take it for granted that we have been able to get back on the stage sharing fantastic music with you. And we will not let Covid (or other) challenges dampen our enthusiasm to make 2022 bigger and better than ever.
This year is already off to a huge start with several performances already completed plus many more coming up very soon. Keep a eye on our What’s On page for what’s coming up next with TMO. With your help, we will not only rise above Covid, but continue on our mission to bring you exceptional first-class programs, at accessible ticket price points, from a range of friendly venues.
