We had tickets to the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra’s Classics Unwrapped earlier in November at the Adelaide City Hall. Since we have been travelling around Australia for almost 6 months we didn’t carry finer clothes with us but we cleaned up as best we could to attend the event with friends. We certainly weren’t the best or the worst dressed but... More

Just enjoyed the second of our ASO concerts this year. First one was Beethoven at the Adelaide Town Hall and today a matinee at Elder Hall, with conductor Nicholas Carter....both well subscribed and both amazing performances.... We are s fortunate to enjoy such music in our town...... Highly recommended if you can get tickets

Adelaide Symphony Orchestra (ASO)’s primary venue is Adelaide Town Hall. But from time to time they perform in Elder Hall. As their concerts in the Town Hall are always scheduled at night, I prefer to go to the one in Elder Hall during the day. For this year they’ve focussed their performance on Mozart at Elder Hall. General admission is... More

We won some tickets (5AA) to the 'Russians' at the Adelaide Festival Theatre and had to collect our tickets from the ASO office on Hindley St,, parking can be difficult in that area. Getting our tickets was seamless and also identified myself as a 'sponsor' of the ASO,,, 'oh, that's nice' not even a smile. Gosh. To the theatre last... More

Both conductor and orchestra keep the audience enthralled. Clearly passionate and love sharing their talent. Took my 5 & 7 yr old nieces to the Christmas Proms- they loved it.

An excellent way to spend an evening. They are superb and the repertoires are terrific. Located in the city makes it convenient. The variety is very good.

The fabulous ASO is right up there with the best in the world. They have a a wealth of talent and are just as comfortable playing Led Zeppelin as Mozart. The soloists are amazing and can match it with their peers around the world. A wonderful asset to South Australia.

We often attend the lunchtime concerts at Elder Hall, a lovely old building for a great orchestra. There is really nothing to dislike about this venue, the orchestra, or the price of tickets.

Have just received their programme for 2015. To quote "...a year filled with great artists performing great music by great composers." Everything from the expected classics through to Led Zeppelin, Last Night at the Proms and a Gallipoli World Premiere "Towards First Light - Gallipoli at 100".
