The BSO was founded in 1981 as a result of the Music 81 Project of the Victorian Government, and was the successor of the Bendigo Concert Orchestra.
The orchestra occupies a key space in the musical life of the City of Greater Bendigo, with the Mayor of Bendigo as Patron.
The BSO is an amateur community Orchestra which rehearses weekly during school term times, and performs at least 3 public concerts per year. Please contact us if you are interested in joining; we are currently welcoming new string players.
Music Director: Luke Severn. The BSO is delighted to welcome Luke as the new Music Director for 2019-2020.
