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! See here for more details.
