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

From the acoustic purity of the City Recital Hall to special events in private homes and exclusive private rehearsals in the intimacy of the ACO Studio, you can experience the power of music while getting to know other young influencers in the arts, culture, business and philanthropy.

As a member of ACO Next 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.  You will support the musicians’ salaries, schools’ workshops, special projects, professional development, touring and marketing costs.

Become a member of ACO Next and join us on this exciting journey while participating in a uniquely creative experience. To find out more, call Sally Crawford, Patrons Manager, on 02 8274 3830.
