Burnside Symphony Orchestra
The Burnside Symphony Orchestra was formed in Adelaide, South Australia in 1956 to provide the opportunity for amateur musicians to play major works from the symphonic repertoire, and to allow aspiring conductors and soloists to gain experience of performing with a full symphony orchestra.
The orchestra’s conductors and soloists are drawn mainly from the ranks of the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and the Elder Conservatorium. Over its long history, the orchestra has performed annual concert programs from its home base at the Burnside Town Hall and also in country centres.
Many of our concerts raise money for local charities. The orchestra is funded by membership subscriptions, proceeds from concerts and the support of the City of Burnside.
We welcome enquiries from musicians who are interested in joining the orchestra.
