Music Director

SBCO’s Music Director and Conductor is Jo Kennedy.  Jo’s dedication and inspirational leadership has been the driving force behind the Orchestra since its outset in 2006 when Jo first had a vision to bring orchestral music to the people of the South Burnett. 
 
Her professional music experience is grounded in her education at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music.  Jo has held positions with leading Australian Orchestras, has developed and directed instrumental programmes and gives private instrumental tuition.  In 2009, Jo received the Australia Day Cultural Award from the South Burnett Regional Council and in 2010 was a finalist in the national Music in Communities Leadership Awards.  Jo and her family have lived in the South Burnett region since 2003.
