8:00 PM - 10:00 PMEmanuel Synagogue

After their amazing Eastern Suburbs debut at Emanuel Synagogue in 2019, the Sacred Music Festival Orchestra returns for one performance on September 18. The 11 piece inter-faith  is made up of artists from Western Sydney, representing diverse cultural and faith backgrounds, creating 'new' Australian Sacred music.  Rabbi Cantor George Mordecai will again join the ensemble of the festival to draw on his Iraqi-Jewish heritage.

The Orchestra takes audiences on a transformative journey of cultural exchange and discovery in its Eastern Suburbs debut.

From ancient tunes in diverse languages to contemporary ‘sacred pop’, this 11-piece interfaith ensemble from Western Sydney showcases an array of talent from Aboriginal Australia, Mongolia, East Turkestan, Vietnam, China and more in the creation of ‘new Australian’ sacred music. The power of this unique ensemble lies in its combination of cultures, faiths and traditions represented on stage, virtuosic musicianship, innovative compositions, and its ability to uplift audiences.

With music performed in diverse languages and ancient traditions to contemporary sacred pop fusions, this ensemble showcases an array of diverse talent. It includes traditions from Aboriginal Australia, Mongolia, East Turkistan, Vietnam, China, Mexico (and more); this is a sacred Symphony for everybody!
