The Maroondah Symphony Orchestra is a community orchestra founded in 1964 and based in Ringwood, a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Conducted by Willem van der Vis, we present four programs of classical music each year at the George Wood Performing Arts Centre, in Ringwood.

New players are welcome, particularly violins and low brass. There are also currently vacancies for other string players. Players of other instruments are welcome to go on our waiting list. Please see the  new players page for details.

The 2017 brochure is available here.

Bookings are available for all 2017 concerts using the TryBooking links below.
Online bookings for each concert close at 8pm on the night prior to the concert. Although tickets are also available at the door, booking online is simple, inexpensive (only 30c), allows you to select your seat and avoids the need to queue.
