Preston Symphony Orchestra Jun 2023

Preston Symphony Orchestra is a full size symphony orchestra founded in 1950 and generously supported by the City of Darebin.

The orchestra plays four concerts a year to large audiences, including the highly-regarded Youth Concerto Competition. Our performances include popular music by famous composers such as Beethoven, Bach, Mozart and Tchaikovsky, as well as works by both established and emerging Australian composers.

The orchestra’s Artistic Director is Andrew Groch.
