The Melbourne Sinfonia was formed in 1990 and since then has presented regular concerts performing music from the baroque, classical, romantic and modern repertoire. Over the years The Melbourne Sinfonia has featured many established local artists and talented students. Joannes Roose has been the orchestra’s Musical Director and Principal Conductor since 1998.

The Melbourne Sinfonia is an Auxiliary of the Royal Children’s Hospital – the first hospital in Victoria to have a resident orchestra. Profits made from our concerts are donated to the RCH to aid the Gatehouse Centre, which supports children and adolescents who have been sexually abused.

The orchestra rehearses on scheduled Wednesday evenings at Flemington Primary School, and performs four concerts a year at the James Tatoulis Auditorium, Methodist Ladies’ College, Kew.
