Mosman Concert Series

The Mosman Concert Series is run by the Mosman Music Club. The Mosman Music Club is affiliated with the Federated Music Clubs of Australia NSW Council, Inc.

Mosman Music Club has been presenting concerts since 1946, initially for the residents of Mosman and its neighbouring suburbs, in an era when cars were few and any distance by public transport was a deterrence, but since Mosman has become an accessible inner suburb, our audience has come from as far as Bondi, Miranda and Hornsby. All our concerts are held in the beautiful acoustics and surrounds of the Blessed Sacrament Church on Bradley’s Head Road, Mosman.
