AUMO: The Next Beat

3, 2, 1 AUMO!!

You’ve been waiting for this haven’t you? And we’ve been waiting for this too, the best event on the calendar, and you’re invited!It’s AUMO’s annual Town Hall concert and this years theme is ‘THE NEXT BEAT.’
That means ground breaking music, singing and dancing to tickle your tympanic membranes, to get your lacrimal glands lacrimating and to send shivers down your spinous processes.

$5500 was donated to the Women’s and Children’s Hospital Foundation to support their growing musical play therapy program. It’s a cause we are immensely proud to have supported.

Thank you also to our sponsors MIPS, Size Music and GPEx for making this event happen. Also thank you to the Adelaide University Union for providing funding and support

When: May 5th 2019, doors open at 6pm with the concert starting at 7pm
Where: Adelaide Town Hall (128 King William Street, Adelaide SA 5000)
