Introduction and Allegro
In 2006, to mark the 25th anniversary of the BSO, the orchestra published:
Introduction and allegro: The Bendigo Symphony Orchestra 1981-2006
Edited by Rob Boxshall, this volume contains a history of the orchestra, as well as the recollections of a quarter of a century of music making as provided by past and present players.
In the preface Councillor Rod Fyffe writes:
“The development of the BSO has created not only a point of differentiation for Bendigo, but also allows the many talented musicians in Bendigo and the region to hone their skills, release their passion and to broaden their horizons….The BSO demonstrates significance to young musicians and it’s an important contribution to the developing cultural life of our city and region….Our community needs the BSO.”
