ASO community engagement

The Adelaide Symphony Orchestra has undertaken several exciting community engagement activities in recent months. In late July, the ASO connected with community musicians through its Come and Play program. This gives participants the experience of playing side by side with the professional musicians of the ASO. Oboe player Anthony Radogna stated: “The next best thing to being a professional musician is having the opportunity to work with professionals. The Come and Play event really accentuates this.”

In August, members of the ASO also visited two community centres and gave free daytime concerts to disadvantaged groups. Kerry MacGrath from Community Centres SA said: “The ASO’s commitment to improving their community engagement is fantastic. The program’s success is measured by the pride that the community centres take in hosting the ASO. It touches people who wouldn’t normally have the opportunity to watch the ASO perform.”
