We often attend the lunchtime concerts at Elder Hall, a lovely old building for a great orchestra. There is really nothing to dislike about this venue, the orchestra, or the price of tickets.

Have just received their programme for 2015. To quote "...a year filled with great artists performing great music by great composers." Everything from the expected classics through to Led Zeppelin, Last Night at the Proms and a Gallipoli World Premiere "Towards First Light - Gallipoli at 100". I love it that Adelaide has such a world class progressive orchestra and I just love the fact that their versatility means that they 'pop up' and collaborate with the Adelaide Festival, the Cabaret Festival, State Opera of South Australia and The Australian Ballet performances during the year as well as their own comprehensive programmes.

We enjoyed a great evening of Bond music played by the ASO, with our family (parents + teens) and grandma. They didn't play every single film theme from the last 50 years but chose a great range of styles and even did the more pop-style themes fantastically - with 2 guest singer-soloists where appropriate. The conductor gave the evening a very enjoyable entertainment/comedy overtone, and it included a demonstration of making a martini Bond-style. Well done ASO - keep the theme evenings coming !

Wow what a night.
As usual the ASO performed another night of memorable tunes from the James bond stable.
Goldfinger,Live 7 Let die etc....
All controlled by the talented conductor Guy Noble who seemed to relish the job of presenter more so than conductor.The 2 vocalists Debora Krizak and Blake Bowden made for a grear night.
Anothe night of wonderful music.
