ACO Next offers a unique musical and networking experience for people who appreciate a cultural experience like no other.
From experiencing outstanding performances in Sydney and Melbourne’s most prestigious concert halls, to joining us for special events in private homes and exclusive private rehearsals in the intimacy of ACO Pier 2/3, members of ACO Next experience the power of music while getting to know likeminded individuals who are passionate about the arts, culture and philanthropy. Members play an active role in championing the Orchestra and directly support ACO Collective, our regional touring orchestra featuring young musicians at the start of their professional careers.
Our ACO Next members also enjoy exclusive cultural opportunities including:
- Behind-the-scenes Private Rehearsals, including drinks with ACO musicians;
- An invitation to the ACO Next cocktail party. Held at unique locations these events feature intimate performances by members of the ACO;
- One ticket per member to two ACO concerts per year, including one post-performance function with the musicians;
- ACO concert tickets at the special ACO Next price ($49 per ticket, saving more than 50%, limit of two tickets per concert); and
- A surprise or two along the way.
