The Adelaide Symphony Orchestra (also known as the ASO) was founded as a 17 player radio ensemble in 1936, in Adelaidemarker, South Australiamarker. The orchestra reformed in 1949 as the 55 member South Australian Symphony Orchestra. It reverted to its original and present title, the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, in late 1974, and currently comprises 74 permanent members. Its music director since 2004 has been Arvo Volmer.

Each year the orchestra undertakes over 100 performances across a diverse musical spectrum. The ASO provides the orchestral support for all productions of the State Opera of South Australia, for Adelaide performances of the Australian Ballet and Opera Australia, and is the most prolific contributor to the Adelaide Festivalmarker. The popular annual tradition of Symphony Under the Stars, the outdoor Alfresco series, the innovative Education Program, ASO on Tour, the East End Rush Hour chamber series, and the entertaining Showtime Series are just some concerts bringing live orchestral music to South Australians each year.

The ASO won world acclaim in 1998 with Australia’s first production of Wagner’s Ring Cycle. The orchestra participated in the first fully Australian production of The Ring in 2004, described by national and international critics as "one of the finest occasions in the history of Australian music".[169336]
