Why Subscribe?

To get the most out of your SSO!

You can choose fixed-date packages

We have 14 series in which 2–9 concerts are fixed in your diary from February to December. These specially curated series can be characterised by musical genre, venue, or by matinee or evening. Within each series are packages of 2–9 concerts, depending on your preference. For example, the APT Master Series contains 4–9 classical orchestral works from across the ages in the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall on Wednesday, Friday or Saturday evenings.

Or choose-your-own packages

Create your own season by handpicking your favourite concerts from the season concerts and Special Events. You can:

  • choose 4, 6 or 8 concerts,
  • choose the most convenient date, and
  • choose where to sit from Premium to C reserve.

If you want to include Special Events in your package, choose a Connoisseur's Selection. If you don't want any Special Events, choose a Signature Selection.

Either way, you still get the best available seats and all the benefits of subscribing! If you are not certain, just call us for guidance.
