The Churchlands Community Orchestra (CCO) is an amateur orchestra which has been playing music together for over 40 years.  Our mission is to provide a positive, friendly, informal, and above all encouraging atmosphere in which amateur musicians can play a varied repertoire of orchestral music.  CCO also promotes the ongoing learning of music, and seeks to provide a place where musicians of all standards and abilities can feel included and play for the love of music.  CCO promotes a sense of community awareness and responsibility, and seeks to give something back to our community.

About Us

We meet on Monday evenings at St Nicholas Anglican Parish Hall, 47 Berkeley Crescent, Floreat.  (The best access for the Parish Hall is from The Boulevard, opposite Floreat Ave and the Floreat Forum Shops.) Rehearsals are from 7.30pm to 9.30pm with a short break at 8.30.

Our repertoire is directed by our conductor and is dictated by the range and talent level of instrumentation available from year to year. We play a range of pieces, from classical orchestra standards to contemporary musicals and movie soundtracks. There are opportunities for a multi-skilled player to move to another section of the orchestra as needed to provide a fuller orchestral sound.
