The Sevenoaks Symphony Orchestra, founded in 1944, is made up of 70 local musicians with a professional conductor and leader. We are set up as a charity, and our aim is to make live orchestral music available locally.
Our three subscription concerts each season focus particularly on 19th and 20th century masterpieces which are attractive and enjoyable for our audiences, and at the same time interesting and challenging for us as players. In addition we present our very popular Family Concerts in October and a Taste of Classics concert in the New Year, a short mid-week concert with complimentary glass of wine. We also team up with the Sevenoaks Philharmonic Choir for a joint concert in June.
We rehearse each Wednesday from 8-10.15pm at Sevenoaks Primary School.
You can find us on Facebook here or follow us on Twitter.

We are always on the look out for new players. At the start of the autumn term there will be an informal "Play for Pleasure" which is an opportunity to rehearse then play through a full scale symphony so please contact us if you are grade VIII or above and would like to meet us.
Stag Theatre, Sevenoaks
Our family concert is aimed at families with primary school children. This event has been a sell-out for a number of years, so we try to meet the demand for tickets by performing this concert twice, at 2 pm and 4pm.
The programme for 'Magic' includes a wide range of pieces, including music from Harry Potter and also the Sorcerer's Apprentice.
Please book tickets through the Stag Theatre box office - Tickets for both performance are on sale now, via the Stag Theatre web site
