There is a new review of our last concert available here.

 Welcome to the Horsham Symphony Orchestra web site!

Here you will find details of past and forthcoming concerts of this enterprising and musical orchestra which performs three times a year in The Capitol, Horsham.

On the 26th November last year, we not only had our first concert of the new season, but we also had a photo session with the rather wonderful Toby Phillips Some of the results of his work can be seen on our photos page

The HSO is delighted to have been chosen for the 2016/2017 Adopt a Composer scheme and will be working with the talented Adriano Adewale. Click here for more details.




Some History

The HSO is 45 years old and has an interesting history. Past musical directors include Charles Hazlewood, Paul Hoskins, and Benjamin Pope, but the orchestra is most fortunate now to be conducted by the fabulous Steve Dummer.

Most concerts sell out except for a few seats right at the back, so please contact us early to avoid disappointment! Why not join our mailing list so that we can let you know when tickets go on sale? Or obtain priority booking by joining our Friends of the Orchestra scheme?

Lastly, we have recently started a new all-comers orchestra called "H2O" to give local people an opportunity to play with like-minded musicians in a fun and friendly atmosphere.  H2O is open to all ages and abilities but our preferred minimum standard is equivalent to about Grade 5.  However, the most important attribute is enthusiasm!
