About Us


Cairns Concert Orchestra have been performing for the Cairns community for over 50 years, established in 1969 as Cairns Civic Orchestra.

We perform at least 3 major concerts per year, including our Annual Dinner Concert!

On occasion we collaborate with accomplished wind players, vocalists, and other string groups to add zest and dimension to our performances. 

Cairns Concert Orchestra is a not-for-profit organisation and welcomes new musicians at any time.


We welcome confident adult (young and old) string players to be part of our orchestra. In order to organise music and seating in advance please contact us. 

Music Sheets


Aside from our yearly concert schedule, we are available for entertainment at corporate or community events and are always interested in opportunites to collaborate with other music groups within the arts industry. We are flexible in size and repertoire. 

Some recent events have been:

  • Garden Party & Community Celebration, Black Cockatoo Gallery, Bloomfield

  •  Baroque to Broadway Concert (ft Hannah Burnett), Jnr Eisteddfod Hall, Edgehill

  • Last Night of the Proms Tribute Dinner Concert, Pullman Reef Hotel Casino, Cairns
