Who We Are
Established in 2011, Perth Symphony exists to reach every Western Australian with orchestral music and provide a platform to showcase the extraordinary musical talent we have in our home state.
We are a dynamic musical organisation that seeks to redefine the rules of symphony orchestra performances. We do this by playing in places and spaces you’d never expect to find an orchestra, including sheds, warehouses - even aeroplane hangars - in locations all over WA. We perform music from Mozart to Metallica, Björk to Beethoven and everything in between.
Perth Symphony has a unique position in the State’s cultural fabric as a nimble and flexible organisation that collaborates with a huge range of artists, art-forms, styles and cultures, to elevate WA communities through music-making.

We are looking for individuals who align with our values and will play an active role in our team by being supportive, inclusive and collaborative.
