Welcome to the Music on the Terrace 2020 season! 

Treating you to some of Perth's finest classical music events through the year!

This year you are invited to grab a picnic rug and some friends to enjoy Jazz on the Lawn. For children, there will be a concert of magical storytelling, followed by Easter egg hunts in the garden.

In June, dancing will be brought back to the Ballroom with Winter Tea Dances. And, for the very first time, Music on the Terrace will present two of WA's finest indigenous artists to open the series.

Including a very special evening, nuit blanche long table dinner featuring ABC Duets presenter Tamara-Anna Cislowska alongside artistic director, Fiona Campbell.
