The elite Sydney Youth Orchestras will swap the concert halls for the city streets as they perform 12 hours of live music at Martin Place, Circular Quay and Central Station from 7.30am, for an expected 600,000 passers-by.  It will be a rare chance to enjoy Australia’s leading youth orchestra, which in August performed the gruelling 90-minute Bruckner Symphony No.8 that makes professional musicians sweat.
