The Baradene College Senior Orchestra is made up of 50-55 players largely drawn from Years 9 – 13 students of Grade 4 standard and above.  It is an enthusiastic and vital, vertical community within Baradene where the girls play a wide variety of music from Baroque to Contemporary which not only inspires but which they enjoy.  The Baradene College Orchestra performs at school masses, assemblies, concerts and prize giving as well as participating successfully in the Annual KBB Orchestra Festival.

The 2016 Europe Music Tour saw both orchestra and choir tour Italy, Croatia and Austria, with performances in Rome, Dubrovnik, Cilipi, Zagreb, United Nations and Sacre Coeur Wien in Vienna. The orchestra girls also took part in the workshop at the Vienna Music Conservatorium, one of the largest and recently voted best music tertiary institution in the world.
