“World class band!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

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 leave the stage door to go home wearing their jeans and joggers and looking like any group of young musos.

“Concert by invitation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

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 with a Twist”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

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.
