Subscriber Benefits

When you buy a 2017 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
One of the benefits of subscribing is a 10% discount on additional tickets to MSO concerts. Ensure that you book your additional seats as early as possible to lock in the best price for the season ahead. You are able to book these additional tickets at your subscriber discount at the same time you purchase your subscription. Subscribers can also buy tickets before they 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
Hurry, book now! MSO will waive the transaction fee on subscriptions booked during the renewal period (15 August – 30 September 2016). Please note, there is a $2 charge if you would like your tickets posted to you. For more information about MSO’s fees and charges, visit

Unlimited 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 fee FREE, with every ticket thereafter charged at our discounted subscriber exchange rate of just $5 per ticket. With all exchanges any price difference in the face value of the ticket will be payable at the time of exchange.

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

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.
