ACO Next is an exciting philanthropic program supporting, shaping and engaging with Australia’s next generation of great musicians. ACO Next offers a unique musical and networking opportunity for people who appreciate cultural experiences like no other.

From the acoustic purity of concert halls in Sydney and Melbourne, to special events in private homes, to exclusive private rehearsals in the intimacy of the ACO Studio, you can experience the power of music while getting to know other passionate influencers in the arts, culture, business and philanthropy.

As a member, you will directly support ACO Collective, our regional touring orchestra featuring young musicians at the start of their professional careers, who play alongside ACO mentors. ACO Collective helps prepare these brilliant young players for life as a working musician through intensive rehearsal periods, presentation of our regional tours and participation in the delivery of our education programs to schools across regional Australia.

Become a member of ACO Next to join us in a unique, creative experience. To find out more, call our Patrons Manager Sally Crawford on 02 8274 3830.
