Our players’ representative, Douglas Coghill has been particularly busy and musicians from the TSO have been particularly generous, and we will soon announce a wonderful array of treats and performances for those fortunate enough…or savvy enough…to be members of TSO Friends.

  • Please ensure that mobile phones (or any devices that may create noise), are turned off – or in silent mode.
  • Please be punctual and gather in the foyer of the Federation Concert Hall, as latecomers cannot be seated.
  • You will be ushered to a seating area.  Once seated, please remain in your chosen seat

RACT Symphony under the Stars
24 February, City Park, Launceston

The committee were busy with the two Symphony under the Stars concerts this February, running the raffles in aid of the orchestra. Both concerts were great successes, artistically and financially. Thank you to the members who volunteered as ticket sellers and to all the other attendees who supported the raffle by buying tickets and glowstix.
