Welcome

The 2019/20 season is the Brent Symphony Orchestra’s 109th year. We aspire to perform the finest orchestral music, bringing together pieces you may well have heard of, together with something new. Recent concerts have featured symphonies by Elgar, Bruckner, Mahler, Nielsen and Vaughan Williams; concertos by Sibelius and Strauss and also work by Bernstein, Mozart, Ravel and Stravinsky.

We are continuing our mission to play lesser-known works in our programmes amongst the audience favourites and will be performing works by William Grant Still and Lili Boulanger together with favourites by Strauss, Gershwin and Wagner. If you would like to be the first to hear about our events, please sign up to our mailing list.

Spring Concert Postponed

In line with Government guidelines and our duty to the safety of our members and audience members, the concert on 13th June has been postponed to Spring 2021.

The COVID-19 outbreak is affecting us all, and all in different ways. For Brent, it means the first cancelled concert in over a century. We are confident that we’ll be able to come back in full strength on November 7th – a concert drawing from the very best of the romantic repertoire. We hope to see all of you there in full health.

Seeking Musicians

If you are a friendly musician looking to join an exciting and ambitious orchestra in North London, please do get in touch. We have vacancies for a Co-principal Trombonist and Double bass players. We’re always pleased to hear from instrumentalists, especially brass and string players keen to play with us.

For more information about joining the orchestra see the Join Us page.

Friends of Brent Symphony Orchestra

We have a Friends of Brent Symphony Orchestra scheme which helps to continue the development of the orchestra and allows our audiences to enjoy new and exciting programmes and soloists, while at the same time coping with the rising costs of putting on concerts.

We are really grateful to our Friends who are helping us achieve this and if you would like to join and get a FREE concert ticket, please see the Support Us page.
