Thank you for taking the time to review the show. It’s wonderful to have such great supporters of the ASO and we love bringing such works to Adelaide audiences.

Both conductor and orchestra keep the audience enthralled. Clearly passionate and love sharing their talent. Took my 5 & 7 yr old nieces to the Christmas Proms- they loved it.
