Welcome to Orpheus Music Society, home to the Orpheus Strings chamber orchestra. Our goal is to bring vibrant classical music to the Blue Mountains community of NSW, Australia.

Orpheus Strings in 2023

Orpheus is kicking off 2023 with its first concert of the year on the 26th of March.

This year is the 30th anniversary of the Orchestra, and we have begun this year of celebration by showcasing two soloist performers, Clare Cooney and Hannah Kolos. Clare and Hannah begun playing with Orpheus at a young age, and continued their musical journeys into their adult lives. Clare will be performing Nicholas Buc‘s Rhapsody for all seasons and Hannah will be performing Joseph Haydn’s Cello Concerto in D minor.

Orpheus will also feature Tchaikovsky’s String Sectext in D Minor Opus 70

Vacancies Open

Orpheus Strings welcomes new players to join us. We are open to players from all backgrounds, and encourage community members with an interest in playing music to contact us at info@orpheusstrings.org. The orchestra performs four concerts a year in Katoomba, and rehearses on Sunday evenings at Wentworth Falls.  We are particularly looking for a viola player and double bass player.
