The Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra strongly believes that it has a responsibility to connect with Tasmanians from all walks of life. Accordingly, ensembles drawn from the TSO go out into the community and give concerts, lecture-demonstrations and workshops in civic centres, child care centres, aged care facilities, libraries, hospitals and prisons.
Of particular note is the AccessTix program, a TSO initiative proudly supported by Hydro Tasmania and the Allport Bequest. Launched in 2009, AccessTix brings the TSO to Tasmanians who experience disadvantage in some way, whether through physical or intellectual disability, economic disadvantage, social isolation or mental illness. In any one year, AccessTix typically makes available 1,000 concert tickets.
