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 and there is an opportunity for new players to try us out. Before we start the summer break in July, our last two rehearsals of the season (Wednesdays 28th June & 5th July) will be informal repertoire evenings, so 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 - please note, our rehearsal on June 21st starts at 7:30.
You can find us on Facebook here or follow us on Twitter.
