We believe music enriches the way people think, feel and live their lives – and our aim is simple: to promote meaningful, lifelong engagement with live music. We are committed to our community in a great number of ways: concerts, learning activities with schools, community outreach, collaborations with other SA arts organisations.

Since 2015, the ASO with the support of our Principal Partner Santos has been going on the road to meet the greater Adelaide community through its Out of the CBD series in venues such as Hopgood Theatre (Noarlunga), Barossa Arts and Convention Centre (Tanunda), Shedley Theatre (Elizabeth), Centenary Hall (Goolwa), Murray Bridge Town Hall (Murray Bridge) and Investigator College (Victor Harbor).

Throughout 2016 we were thrilled to develop our relationship with Community Centres SA, bringing small ensemble performances to community centres across inner and outer metropolitan Adelaide, and we look forward to developing this series into the future. Our 2017 community program will also see our partnership with local libraries grow, as we bring a range of school holiday and early years music programs to a number of public libraries.

More details of our 2017 Family and Community program to be released November 2016.
