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...More

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.

No matter what they play, Richard and the team surpass expectations. Many a rapyuous moment spent in their company. The Red Tree was perhaps one of my most favourite concerts!

Talented group of young players. The old Violins that the 3 leads use are exquisite to hear & watch being played. Richard is an outstanding player...such talent!

One of the world's finest little orchestras. Wonderfully led, great players

The constant emphasis on youth, while well meaning in terms of attracting new audiences, actively discourages and discrminates against people over 45, partticularly the low income elderly. A poor policy in my view.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
