Brisbane Symphony Orchestra (formerly Brisbane Sinfonia) was formed in 1990 in response to the need for a community orchestra of professional performance standard. Members of the orchestra are drawn from all walks of life including medical specialists, lawyers and professional musicians engaged in music education. The orchestra has had marked success, due in great measure to the efforts of founding conductor and artistic director Antoni Bonetti.

Brisbane Symphony Orchestra’s annual concert program provides an entertaining array of standard orchestral repertoire by such composers as Beethoven, Stravinsky, Dvorak, Bruch, Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn, Britten, Berlioz, Shostakovich and Carl Vine. The orchestra has also commissioned works by Australian composers Robert Davidson and Paul-Antoni Bonetti.

Brisbane Symphony Orchestra currently performs up to eight concerts per year in Brisbane and small regional centres such as Samford, Bribie Island, Kawana Waters, and has performed in many South-East Queensland concert venues such as Toowoomba, Maleny, Noosa, Gold Coast and Caloundra. Orchestra members feel great enjoyment from performing and sharing their love of classical music with these communities.
