Penrith Symphony Orchestra

Penrith Symphony Orchestra is a “pro-am” (part-professional, part-amateur) symphony orchestra. Formed in 1988 to present a Bicentenary celebration concert in Penrith, it has become an ongoing and major part of the performing arts sector in Western Sydney.

Presenting a diverse program of performances, the orchestra offers audiences in Western Sydney and surrounding areas an attractive, accessible and highly affordable alternative to the relatively high effort and cost required to experience and attend similar musical experiences in central Sydney.

Opportunities for advanced members of Penrith Youth Orchestra to perform in PSO concerts are one of the key music education and performance pathways that the youth orchestra creates in the Western Sydney community.
