2016 Season Packages

Posted on 5 Nov 2015 by Leo Messias

In 2016 we have expanded our range of packages to better suit your needs.

Handpick from your favourite 2016 concerts, delve into Beethoven's late string quartets, enjoy afternoon treats (available in Melbourne and Sydney ) or choose from our more adventurous programs with ACO+ Packages (available in Melbourne and Sydney) - there's something for every taste!




CHOOSE YOUR OWN PACKAGE - and save money on your tickets

If you’d rather pick and choose which concerts and which venues you’d like to attend in 2016 you can build your own personalized ACO package. Take advantage of some great Choose Your Own Package benefits:

  • Discounted tickets: you’ll save up to 20% on tickets
  • Flexible Ticket Exchange: Life’s busy. Plans change. Booking a package entitles you to change your tickets if you can no longer make a particular concert.

Not fond of booking online? No problem. Call the ACO Box Office on 1800 444 444 who can process your package order over the phone (Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm)




Beethoven’s late string quartets are the mighty pillars on which the ACO’s 2016 season is built. These intricate works have been described as the undisputed pinnacle of chamber music-making, like a musical Everest, created at the height of Beethoven’s creative power.

Book all Beethoven concerts in Melbourne (6 concerts/2 venues) or Sydney (5 concerts/2 venues) and you will receive 20% discount on your tickets.

Venues: Arts Centre Melbourne (ACM), Melbourne Recital Centre (MRC), City Recital Hall (CRH), Sydney Opera House (SOH)
