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 a year at the George Wood Performing Arts Centre, in Ringwood, with repeat concerts at other venues.
New players are welcome. We currently have vacancies for string players, particularly violas and double basses. Players of other instruments are welcome to go on our waiting list. Please see the new players page for details.
