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 are always on the look out for new players. Please contact us if you are grade VIII or above and would like to try us out. We rehearse each Wednesday from 8-10.15pm at Sevenoaks Primary School. You can also find us on Facebook here or follow us on Twitter.

This concert opens with Handel's Overture in D minor, in an arrangement by Edward Elgar. We then play Elgar's own violin concerto, and are delighted to welcome back the internationally renowned soloist Michael Foyle, who played the Prokofiev violin concerto no. 2 with us in 2015. The concert concludes with Brahms first symphony. Written over a period of many years, this is surely one of the great 19th century symphonies.
Tickets £17, £16 for concessions, £1 for under-19's
