Music & Architecture: Glassbreakers and Barrack Place

151 Clarence St
Sydney NSW 2000

Thursday 18 February from 12pm to 2pm



Music & Architecture is a program of carefully curated free concerts that celebrate Sydney's musicians and artists, and public spaces which accentuate some of the city's most architecturally significant office buildings.

Award winning, platinum selling singer songwriter and producer ILAN KIDRON brings GLASSBREAKERS to the laneways of Barrack Place.

Glassbreakers is a tight, energetic powerhouse of party brilliance performing breathtaking new takes on old world classics and wicked twists on the new within the vibrant laneway precinct of the Architectus-designed office tower Barrack Place.

Designed to reflect the heritage laneways and carriageways of the historical warehouse precinct in central Sydney, Barrack Place’s exposed-brick and cobblestone laneway connections with playful suspended art installation and range of retail, bar and food offerings provides a chilled setting for the Glassbreakers sassy lunchtime pop-up performance.

KIDRON is joined by some of Sydney’s finest musicians, including HARRY SUTHERLAND, PHIL STACK and BEN ADLER, who over the years, have shared the stage with the likes of Grace Jones, Matt Corby, Tim Minchin, Hugh Jackman, Missy Higgins, Charlie XCX, Pharaoh Sanders, Branford Marsalis, Kurt Elling, Nigel Kennedy, James Morrison and Vince Jones. Sound by Andy Jenkinson.
