The Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra (TSO) today announced Aurora Energy as new supporting partner of its flagship community program AccessTix, which provides complimentary tickets to TSO performances through a network of community organisations across the state.

The TSO is committed to providing opportunities for every Tasmanian to experience world-class orchestral music, live in the concert hall.

To further this goal, the AccessTix program was introduced in 2011 to enable all Tasmanians to access to the TSO’s over 40 statewide performances annually.

Currently clients of 41 community organisations get to experience the music of the TSO, with client sectors including young vulnerable people, socially isolated elderly, physical and intellectual disability, mental illness, economic disadvantage and social isolation.

TSO CEO Caroline Sharpen said, "We are delighted to see Aurora Energy join us to support AccessTix; we are so proud of the success of this program and its ability to bring those less able to attend concerts the remarkable experience of a TSO concert. Supporters like Aurora Energy enable us to sustain this program, which makes such a difference to so many Tasmanians."

Aurora Energy CEO Rebecca Kardos said, "We actively seek to support projects and programs right across the state that foster inclusion and contribute to making Tasmania a great place to live. The AccessTix program does exactly that by giving community members the opportunity to have a day out on Aurora Energy and an experience they’ll never forget."

If you think you, or someone you know, might be eligible for AccessTix tickets, or if you want more information about the program, please contact the TSO directly by emailing accesstix@tso.com.au or calling 1800 001 190.
