Be immersed in music and surrounded by inspiration.
MUSIC ON THE WATER with Andrew Ford is a unique way to appreciate Sydney Harbour by revelling in the perspective and curated music of composer, writer, broadcaster and world class raconteur Andrew Ford.
In this very special event, Andrew takes you on a tour of the history and inspiration of musical Sydney harbour – including his own work “Harbour”.
Absorb insight and inspired music as we navigate the bays and beauty of the harbour, listening to some of the most beautiful music in the world and finally come to rest under the skirt of the Sydney Opera House – where much of Andrews music has been featured.
Andrew has carefully curated a widely varying tour – pairing music from all genres with the sights and locations of Sydney harbour. Listen to him weave them all together and join him for an entirely unique listening party coupled with fine wine and canapés.

His music has been performed by the likes of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and New Juilliard Ensemble, the Brodsky Quartet, Hong Kong Sinfonietta and Black Dyke Band. He has published ten books, most recently The Song Remains the Same, written with Anni Heino (La Trobe University Press, 2019), and has written, presented and co-produced five radio series.
