Noosa Orchestra was established by Silvi Eckley on 4th February, 2010, to provide an opportunity for musicians from the community to express their orchestral performance skills, and contribute to the rich cultural fabric of Noosa life.
The orchestra has endeared itself to Sunshine Coast audiences, executing three seasons annually and performing repertoire as diverse as Handel’s “Water Music”, Liszt’s “Hungarian Rhapsody”, Tchaikovsky’s “Swan Lake” and the symphonies and concertos of Bach, Mozart, Beethoven and peers.
Under the direction of esteemed conductor, Antoni Bonetti, the ensemble has matured into well respected classical orchestra, attracting national and international soloists including Louise King (cello), Louise Kennedy (soprano), Karen Hicks (bassoon), and Michael McKay (trumpet.)
The orchestra’s 40 members are themselves skilled music teachers, advanced students, and passionate recreational musicians from all corners of the Sunshine Coast and Gympie.
In 2017 Noosa Orchestra will present another exciting collection of works to entertain the Maleny Community.
