Now in its fifth decade, Orchestra Victoria is one of Australia’s two specialist pit orchestras. It is proud to be the performance partner of The Australian Ballet, Opera Australia and Victorian Opera. In addition to its core pit activities, Orchestra Victoria presents concerts and education workshops in regional and outer metropolitan centres across Victoria. Delivering more than 200 performances each year, Orchestra Victoria is committed to creating opportunities for all Victorians to experience orchestral music.

After 44 years of performances together, in 2014 Orchestra Victoria became a wholly owned subsidiary of The Australian Ballet, cementing the future of the orchestra as one of Australia’s most dynamic Major Performing Arts companies. Orchestra Victoria is grateful for the support of its government, philanthropic and corporate partners.
