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 committee elected annually. We present an annual programme of (usually) 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 Classical period, our concerts often include works by later composers.

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, and is managed by a committee annually elected by and from 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.

Sydney Mozart Society Patrons

We are inspired by our patrons who have each made important contributions to Australian music and who have guided us with their wisdom and passion for excellence in music performance.
