About the Sydney Mozart Society

The Sydney Mozart Society was founded by David Worobin OAM in 1950. The Society is a non-profit enterprise run by a volunteer, annually elected, committee. We present an annual programme of six chamber music concerts. We receive no external funding. While the Society is dedicated to the promotion and performance of music by Mozart and other masters of the 'Golden Age' of music, we do extend our offerings by including works by composers outside these limits.

What makes our concerts special

Our story

Over the years we have valued our association with the broadcast station Fine Music FM. Many of our concerts have been recorded by Fine Music FM volunteers. Fine Music's June 2017 Magazine included an article by Laura-Jay Mathison about the Society's history and legacy. Read it here.

A totally non-profit Society

Sydney Mozart Society operates on not-for-profit, member-funded and member-volunteer lines, being managed by a committee elected annually by its members. Because of the Society's low overhead (there are no paid staff) both members and the general public are able to enjoy world standard performances at remarkably low cost.

Mozart and much more

Although the Society is primarily dedicated to the performance of the works of Mozart and the music of Mozart's contemporaries, other later composers are well represented in the Society's annual season of concerts. 

The Society also encourages the recording by Australian artists of the works of Mozart and has sponsored the production of CDs by 'Tall Poppies' of Mozart's wind quartets and quintet, oboe and clarinet quintets as well as the Brahms clarinet quintet. 

The Society was pleased to assist in the expansion of the Mozart section of the music library of the University of NSW through its gift of the New Mozart Edition, a comprehensive collection of his works, accessible to the general public.

Each year the Society awards a cash prize at the Ryde Eisteddfod Piano Finals for performance of one movement of a Mozart piano sonata by contestants aged 16 years and under.
