Concert Hall

Popular lunchtime concert series Live at Lunch returns for an eighth season in 2020, featuring a stunning program curated by Artistic Director and international flautist, Jane Rutter. The series will bring together renowned Australian musicians including guitarists Giuseppe Zangari, Chrystian Dooza and Karin Schaupp, soprano star Taryn Fiebig, harpist Louise Johnson and many more!

AUGUST 12 CONCERT IS ON!

If you have purchased tickets to Live at Lunch Concert ODE TO JOY! ODE TO LIFE! on 12 August 2020, we will be holding the concert, but will change the program.  The concert will instead feature Master pianist Gerard Willems AM, with Jane Rutter, Chevalier des arts et Lettres, in a wonderful program of Beethoven, Debussy, Grieg & Chopin.

Please be reassured:

  • To accommodate COVID-19 restrictions, the audience will be significantly smaller
  • The venue will be at 25% capacity
  •  Patrons will be spaced apart in the Concert Hall and foyer waiting areas.
  •  Additional special cleaning and hygiene practices will be in place.

Willoughby Council, Century Venues & Jane Rutter are doing their best to ‘raise the curtain’ and provide you with some wonderful live music.

However, during this difficult time, forces beyond our control may still necessitate the postponing of this gorgeous concert. Fingers crossed we can proceed-we can’t wait to see you again!

This is for existing ticket holders only and no further tickets will be sold. Please email if you have any questions: wsoc@willoughby.nsw.gov.au
