About Us

Stonnington Symphony is a not-for-profit, registered charitable organisation based in Melbourne’s south-eastern suburbs. It is widely regarded as one of Australia’s finest community orchestras, as well as being a flag-ship community arts organisation in the City of Stonnington. Its mission is to produce professional-standard, affordably-priced concerts, attractive to a broad spectrum of the community, in readily accessible venues.

The orchestra currently has players ranging in age from 18 to 83, who volunteer their leisure time to share their extensive skills and musical experience with fellow musicians and audiences alike. Stonnington Symphony actively encourages members of the community to become involved in its various activities as players, Friends or volunteers.

The Stonnington Symphony Artistic Development Fund is a registered charity for the purpose of furthering the cultural growth of Stonnington Symphony’s musicians, members and audiences. All donations over $2 to this fund are tax deductible.

We welcome new members, playing and non-playing, at any time, as well as volunteers for various administration and concert-day tasks. For further information, please contact our office.

Since its inception in 1983, Stonnington Symphony has been an organisation committed to being of and for our community.
