The 2016/17 season is the Brent Symphony Orchestra’s 106th 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’ve had a fantastic start to the season and are looking forward to our Christmas concert on Saturday 17 December. Our Christmas concerts are full of fun and perfect for families. This year we’re featuring music from around the world with Sibelius’ Finlandia, Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suite and Tahiti Trot by Shostakovich featuring his take on ‘Tea for Two’. Of course, no Christmas concert is complete without Sleigh Ride and carols! For more details, visit our concerts 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.
