ACO Family Day

Concerts and free creative play for a day of music and discovery for all.

As part of our Opening Festival, we’re throwing open the doors of our new home for ACO fans of all ages. Enjoy a family-friendly 20-minute performance by a string quartet or register for free creative play activities offering children the opportunity to try a string instrument and create one of their very own. Tea, coffee and refreshments will be available for parents and caregivers, who are invited to relax and enjoy the view from the ACO’s new event space, the Belgiorno Room

Suitable for families with children aged 2 – 10. Tickets for the string quartet concert (20 minutes) are $25 and general admission. Seating will include chairs and cushions and we recommend arriving early to take your seat. Creative play activities in the Events Space are free, but registration is essential.
