Who We Are

Founded in 2022, the Sydney Concert Orchestra is a symphony orchestra based in Australia. It consists of a wide range of young and emerging musicians who all share a common passion for music. The SCO has experienced quite the rapid run of success, captivating their audiences with passionate interpretations of prominent symphonic works after just two concerts.

 

The Sydney Concert Orchestra ultimately presents young and emerging musicians a genuine taste of what the professional orchestral life entails. The aim is to make their music as accessible as possible whilst maintaining an elite standard of performance. We believe musicians are deserving of more space and opportunities to perform and thus the SCO is here to provide.

 

In December 2022, the Sydney Concert Orchestra premiered their first concert: Sydney Concert Orchestra Presents: Dvorak Symphony No. 9, at the prestigious Verbrugghen Hall in the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. This concert represented the passion and collaborative initiative of all the musicians. Moreover, Sydney’s music scene was seemingly re-ignited with an exciting and fresh orchestra coming to the fore.

 

Thus, the Sydney Concert Orchestra is welcoming all young and emerging musicians to not only collaborate and challenge themselves but hopefully, inspire others along the way.
