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 (unfortunately disrupted  by COVID-19 restrictions) features three of Beethoven’s most popular works. Download the MaSO 2020 Brochure and see below for details.

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. Players of other instruments are welcome to go on our waiting list. Please see the new players page for details.

Due to the COVID-19 situation, bookings have been suspended for the remaining 2020 concerts, which will no longer take place due to the COVID-19 restrictions. Our first concert for 2021 will take place towards the end of March 2021, restrictions permitting. Proposed concert dates may be found below, although these have not yet been finalised.

All rehearsals are cancelled for the remainder of 2020 due to the COVID-19 situation. Hopefully they will resume on Tuesday 26th January 2021.

Please check back here early in the new year for the latest updates.
