ACO UP CLOSE
GET TO KNOW OUR PLAYERS IN THIS SERIES OF INTIMATE RECITALS.
There is much to discover about the musicians in the ACO in this series of recitals presented in Sydney and Melbourne. Hailing from eight countries and 14 cities, every ACO musician has their own story and unique musical journey. Our ACO Up Close series delves into these stories, revealing the music they love, their life outside the ACO and so much more.
Joined by a guest pianist, each musician will present a program of music closest to their heart. You’ll enjoy celebrated classics and exciting new discoveries, all to be unpacked in conversation with host Kumi Taguchi in Sydney and Zan Rowe in Melbourne.
THERE'S A SEA IN MY BEDROOM
A theatrical and immersive introduction to live classical music based on the beloved children’s book by award-winning author Margaret Wild.

WHERE THE MAGIC OF THE ACO IS PRESENTED ESPECIALLY FOR YOU.
Sharing music with new audiences lies at the heart of everything we do. We’re launching our community program with a series of performances where everyone can enjoy our finest mainstage programs in a relaxed and welcoming environment.
ACO Relaxed Performances feature 50 minutes of music with a guest presenter who will make you feel right at home. Open to everyone, these performances will offer flexible seating arrangements, adjusted lighting and sound levels and quiet spaces to chill out. We welcome people on the autism spectrum, people with disability and additional access needs, parents and carers with babies, or anyone who would enjoy a more informal daytime performance experience. Come along, respond to the music, make noise, be yourself and have fun!
