Sydney Australia Events, March

> > Sydney Australia Events

Here is a selection of things to do in Sydney in March. They include movies, food and live music, the Mardi Gras parade and lots of entertainment.

The city celebrated the Summer festival in January with music and fun galore, then the Chinese New Year, Taronga Twilight concerts and open air movies in February, so March would be a quiet month.

Actually not.

The fun continues with more movies and more concerts.

The music is still on every weekend at Taronga zoo.

Plus there are more things to do, see and taste.

Let's see.

The colourful Mardi Gras parade is running in Sydney since 1978, celebrating diversity and acceptance.

First Emperor - Chinese Entombed Warriors Exhibition -2011

The exhibition was on during January to March 2011 at the New South Wales Art Gallery in the Domain.

The rich collection of exhibits depicted the story of the First emperor of China, in the Qin region, bringing back an era lost in time.

The discovery of the huge terracotta army was totally accidental. Farmers found old pottery objects in 1974 and thought they belonged to their immediate ancestors only to find out that they were about 2200 years old.

An army of archaeologists are still making their way today through 3 pits that are full of beautifully crafted figures of soldiers, horses, chariots, weapons meant to guard the First Emperor in after life. Plus many other decorative objects that are a proof of the superb craftsmanship in those early days.

An Unusual Event - the YouTube Symphony Orchestra

The YouTube Symphony Orchestra came to the Opera House. Young musicians from various countries uploaded their videos on YouTube and have been voted by the public to play next to Sydney Symphony and other accomplished Australian and international musicians during 15 - 20 March.
