“Never Disapoints”

I go to their concerts frequently. They are always good no matter what they present. One of their Pink Floyd concerts was just brilliant.

“Adelaide Symphony Concert Masters Series 1”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

This Concert on 26th April with the Guest Violinist Chloe Hanslip was excellent and it was a chance for an out of town visitor to go to a concert in the Adelaide Town Hall. A great experience and a wonderful performance.

“2001 A Space Odyssey”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

We were in Adelaide during the Festival of Arts and we decided to attend "2001 A Space Odyssey" - because it was the thing to watch in our teens, because it was so highly acclaimed during the festival and mainly because it featured the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. The show was brilliant and the orchestra outstanding. We had attended a performance by this orchestra two years ago while visiting Adelaide and we were so impressed then that we vowed to follow them up whenever we could on subsequent visits!

“Fringe Benefits”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

A pleasure to listen to the orchestra play during a Fringe performance with Pete Murray, right downtown, where families could come along in daytime and enjoy the music and gain an insight into classical alongside other genres.

“A wonderful orchestra”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

Listened to the Orchestra in a different capacity - accompanying the Festival's showing of 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Have always loved the movie but the orchestra made it so much more special. The Blue Danube and Thus Spake Zarathustra have always been favourites of mine and been a major factor of my love of the movie.
The movie could have been seen as old and irrelevant but the Orchestra mad it both exciting and relevant.
