BECOME A PATRON
Becoming a Patron of the TSO means connecting with the orchestra beyond the concert hall stage. By supporting an area close to your heart, you help increase our outreach across Tasmania and beyond, connecting communities, fostering new audiences and inspiring the next generation of classical musicians.
When you support the Orchestra, you play a key part in enabling our artistic vision for the future. From attracting the best musicians to join the TSO, to collaborating with internationally renowned artists and conductors, to performing the world premiere of new works; our ambition is to inspire audiences and provide world-class performances for all Tasmanians. Your support in this area will help underwrite our current concerts and enable the orchestra to continue to push artistic boundaries in the future.
LEARNING & ENGAGEMENT
Our annual TSO Learning and Engagement activities are as varied as the participants. Tailor-made education concerts for early learning and primary schools, and student passes for secondary schools cater to students at all levels and we are currently the only state orchestra to create and offer free online resources for school teachers. To help bridge the gap between tertiary studies and a professional career we have training programs, such as our Australian Conducting Academy, which attracts applicants from Australia and New Zealand. We are proud to provide these programs which celebrate creativity and supports music education in all areas – from composition to performance. Supporting Learning and Engagement will enable us to continue to inspire musicians and music lovers of all ages.
The TSO is in, and of, it’s community and we believe all Tasmanians have the right to experience world-class music. Mini-TSO concerts provide an opportunity for families to enjoy live orchestral music in an informal space. Our AccessTix program provides free concert tickets to people experiencing social, financial, psychological or physical difficulties who otherwise would not be able to attend concerts. We also collaborate with other Tasmanian organisations (most recently DRILL, Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery and Risdon Prison) to create stand-alone works which have been inspired by stories of our state; celebrating individuality and creativity. When you support our Community projects, you help us use the power of music to positively influence the lives of those around us.
