Review of our Mahler 2 with Horsham Symphony Chorus: "The event was a testament to the scope and ambition of local music making, providing a skilled and moving rendition of an extremely challenging, yet exceptionally beautiful piece of music"


Find details of previous concerts and forthcoming concerts of this enterprising and musical orchestra at our regular home at The Capitol, Horsham.

We recently had a photo session with the rather wonderful Toby Phillips Some of the results of his work can be seen on our photos page.

HSO were selected for Making Music's Adopt a Composer scheme and have been working with the enormously talented Adriano Adewale. Click here for more details.

Some History

The HSO is 48 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?

We also have an all-comers orchestra: "H2O", which gives 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! Click here for more details.
