About the Orchestra

Formed in 1987 the Ballarat Symphony Orchestra is a well-established community orchestra with a long and proud history of performance in Ballarat.  The Orchestra is managed by a Committee of Management, currently chaired by Mr Jeff Moran.  Our Principal Conductor is Mr Mark Shiell. Orchestra members are all volunteers, who give their time freely. 

We present three concerts each year at the Wendouree Centre for Performing Arts, as well as performing at occasional community or other events. 

The orchestra plays a wide repertoire and features a range of soloists throughout each year.
