Sydney Philharmonia Choirs | General Terms and Conditions

Handel’s Messiah. Sydney Opera House, December 2022

General Terms and Conditions 

As a result of COVID-19, and in line with the public health orders and the requirements of the NSW Government, we have recently made some changes to the General Terms and Conditions.

Please visit our Covid-19 page for requirements specific to COVID-19. These requirements do not change the arrangements and details otherwise set out in these General Terms and Conditions. If there is any inconsistency between section 2 and the remaining General Terms and Conditions, the Covid-19 will apply (except where indicated).

With COVID-19, things can change from one day to the next. Consequently, we may need to make changes to these General Terms and Conditions from time to time.
