This is the second year I have had an ACO subscription, only previously bought individual tickets and I love them. The latest concert featured Barry Humphries and Meow Meow performing a Concert of songs from the Weimar era and the ACO was as competent and comfortably at home in this genre as their more classical repertoire. I love seeing them... More

Richard T makes this band simply bring the music alive. If you get the chance to attend a performance it's not to be missed

This was a concert given by the orchestra as a 'thankyou' to an art gallery in Sydney which supports them. The music as always was superb - Vivaldi a perennial favourite. A surprise was the Shostakovich which was quite wonderful. A youthful and very talented orchestra, always a pleasure to attend their performances.

Chamber & Classical music isn't for everyone, but if you are in Sydney and you see they are performing, you would be well placed to see them. They generally take Classical music and put a slight twist on it.

Recently reviewed in the Guardian UK as the best chamber orchestra in the world, such praise is no exaggeration. We have been subscribing for over 10 years and there is not a concert that we do not leave feeling upbeat and on a high. The sheer energy of the ensemble is breathtaking and their music covers all tastes. Highly recommended.

The ACO can't be praised enough - they're fresh, and just as cool as classical music can get. Interesting to pick up on where they're from. I think there's a few brilliant emerging musicians from Sydney Youth Orchestra as well.
