Play with the Darwin Symphony Orchestra

Darwin Symphony Orchestra has established itself as one of Australia’s most diverse and culturally significant orchestral institutions. The DSO has developed itself as a cherished Territory institution that prides itself on its connection with the community, diversity of programming, outreach and educational initiatives and continued pursuit of artistic excellence. The DSO is always looking for new players.

“Over our 25 year history hundreds of local musicians have contributed to the development and growth of the Darwin Symphony Orchestra. As we continue this journey I am extremely keen to find out how many musicians we have in the community that play an orchestral instrument and to let everyone know that the DSO is always on the lookout for more musicians to join our wonderful musical family” said Artistic Director and Chief Conductor Matthew Wood. “I would urge anyone who plays an orchestral instrument to get in touch with us, so we can tell you more about your orchestra and the opportunities there are in joining this much cherished ensemble”

The orchestra is currently rehearsing for the final two instalments in its exciting inaugural ‘MasterSeries’. The next is a nature inspired programme including a ‘territorial’ makeover of Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf”. The final concert for 2014 welcomes back jazz supremo James Morrison to join the DSO in a glittering afternoon of symphonic Christmas jazz! Come and see the sound!
