Music to love...

Fremantle Chamber Orchestra's musicians play with energy and soul, delicacy and vigour, joy and love. Join us for the journey.



At Fremantle Chamber Orchestra we believe it's all about the music. We’ve been performing since 2005 and our outstanding musicians bring each of our concerts to life. We create exciting programs by the great composers as well as those who should be better known.

The highlight of our year is when Dutch violinist Rudolf Koelman performs with FCO - just listen to some of the recordings with Rudolf we've included here. This is a maestro of a caliber we rarely hear in Perth.

Come see what we’re all about and share beautiful music with us today!

Need music for your event? We can provide bespoke ensembles, from trios to a full orchestra and soloists.

Send FCO Director Hans Hug an email to explore the options.
