Adelaide Symphony Orchestra's Come & Play

One of the ways in which your ASO engages with its community is through its Come and Play program. This gives community musicians the opportunity to sit next to professional musicians to experience what it’s like to play in a symphony orchestra.

In 2017, this program was offered on Sunday 30 July and after the event, we asked participant (oboist), Anthony Radogna, for some feedback.

ASO Managing Director Vincent Ciccarello's beautiful tribute to our Principal Guest Conductor, Jeffrey Tate, CBE, who passed away on 3 June 2017.

What orchestras arguably need most of all these days are skilled, talented and enthusiastic individuals who can bring the experience of orchestral music to young people. Oddly, they tend to be a small and rare bunch. This is because their abilities need to be spread so widely, across education, conducting, composing, and perhaps above all, communication.

"It's really refreshing to meet young people who are excited about our music and what we do at the ASO; we're not often a strongly present demographic at symphonic concerts so I feel like there's a really noticeable change in energy in the audience at ReMastered concerts, which somehow feels really tangible and exciting as a performer!"
