Subscriber Benefits

When you buy a 2016 subscription, you automatically become a Melbourne Symphony Orchestra Subscriber. Therefore, you receive subscriber benefits as well as other special savings.

See more and pay less
If you plan to see several MSO concerts throughout the year, a subscription is the most cost-effective option.

Priority access and savings on additional tickets
Want to see more than just the concerts in your Series? One of the benefits of subscribing is a 10-35% discount on additional tickets to MSO concerts. Subscribers can also buy additional tickets before seats go on sale to the general public.

Reserved seating
As a subscriber, you are entitled to the same seat for every concert in your series*. If you renew, it will be there for you next year – and every year after that.

No fees including free ticket replacement
Once you pay for your subscription, that’s it. No transaction fees, no booking fees, no credit card fees or any other fees at all, even when you buy additional tickets. Even if you lose or misplace your ticket, there’s no extra cost – the MSO Box Office will replace it for free.

Free ticket exchanges
Sometimes plans can change. If you can’t attend one of your Series concerts, you can exchange your tickets at the MSO Box Office up to two business days prior to the performance. What’s more, your first two exchanges are free.

Buy now, pay later
Only subscribers have the option to pay on an instalment plan. You can secure your seats today and spread the cost over four months.

Free concert diary and diary stickers.
When you purchase a subscription, you will notice a handy pocket diary included with your tickets, as well as stickers for your diary or calendar.

Personal attention
As valued subscriber, you’ll receive personalised service and priority treatment. Visit us Monday to Friday, 9am to 6pm, at the MSO Box Office, 22 Fanning Street, Southbank, or at the customer service desk from one hour before each MSO performance. You can also call us on (03) 9929 9600.
