"Sharing a love of music with the Moreton Bay community"

Moreton Bay Symphony Orchestra Inc. (MBSO) is a friendly community orchestra located in Clontarf, Moreton Bay, Queensland (Australia) that plays a selection of classical and light music. MBSO also has a youth symphony orchestra (MBSO Youth Symphony) for players under the age of 25 years who may not otherwise have the chance to perform in a symphony orchestra.

Both the MBSO and the MBSO Youth Symphony perform regularly throughout the year, presenting four concerts and performing at two or three other community events. Find out how you can book the MBSO or the MBSO Youth Symphony for functions.

MBSO at the Redcliffe Showground markets

MBSO would like to acknowledge the Redcliffe-Kippa-Ring Lions Club for their sponsorship of MBSO at their Community Markets at the Redcliffe Showgrounds last Sunday. Many members of MBSO were at the gates from the crack of dawn, collecting the 20 cent entry fee whilst other members of MBSO busked. The gate collections and busking brought in over $400 which will go towards MBSO's tour of New Zealand in July. Many thanks to the Redcliffe Kippa-Ring Lions' Club for providing MBSO with this fundraising opportunity. The Redcliffe Kippa-Ring Lions' Club will again support MBSO on the 15th of June at the Redcliffe Showground markets. Come along, enjoy the music and say hi.

Thank You to the Brisbane Airport Corporation

MBSO would like to sincerely thank the Brisbane Airport Corporation for a donation of $500 which will go towards funding the orchestra’s New Zealand Tour.
