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.
Next Concert – Saturday 14th March 2020, 7.30pm
In line with current government recommendations, we will be going ahead with this concert. Hope to see lots of you there!
Following the triumphant start to our season, featuring Rosalind Ventris , and a sell-out Christmas concert, we look forward to our spring performance – A Classical Discovery. If you’re curious about classical music and wonder where to start exploring, this is the concert for you. We’ve picked pieces from Haydn to Stravinsky that we think are the perfect place to start.
