Welcome

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, usually at the George Wood Performing Arts Centre, in Ringwood.

Celebrating 250 years since Beethoven’s birth, our 2020 program features three of Beethoven’s most popular works. See below for details and to book (available in early 2020).

Reserved seating is available online and by phone up until 8 pm on the night prior to the concert. Online bookings after this time are General Admission only. Tickets are also available at the door, but booking online is simple, allows you to select your seat and avoids the need to queue.

New players are welcome, particularly violins, violas and double basses. We also have a vacancy for a bassoon.  Players of other instruments are welcome to go on our waiting list. Please see the new players page for details. Orchestra members can find the 2020 rehearsal schedule here.
