About Us

The Churchlands Community Orchestra (CCO) is an amateur orchestra which has existed for over 30 years. Its 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 enjoyment. CCO promotes a sense of community awareness and responsibility, and seeks to give something back to our community.

We meet on Monday evenings at St Nicholas Anglican Parish Hall, 47 Berkeley Crescent, Floreat. Rehearsals are from 7:30pm to 9:30pm with a short break at 8:30.

Our repertoire and selection of pieces is directed by our conductor and is dictated by the range and talent level of instrumentation available from year to year. There are occasionally opportunities for a multi-skilled player to move to another section of the orchestra for one piece to provide a fuller orchestral sound.

The Churchlands Community Orchestra has been around for a long time, becoming incorporated on the 6th of November 1987. If you want to know more about the history of the Orchestra there is an extract from the first newsletter with some of the history in it.
