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 season so far including an amazing sold out Christmas concert and a stunning performance of Rachmaninov’s Symphonic Dances. Our next concert on Saturday 1 July is an all Russian programme and we will be joined by the outstanding violinist Tim Crawford to perform Glazunov’s violin concerto. Tchaikovsy’s Symphony No.5 brings the concert and our season to a rousing finish. For more details, visit our concerts page.
If you are a friendly musician looking to join an exciting and ambitious orchestra in North London, please do get in touch. We’re always pleased to hear from instrumentalists, especially brass and string players keen to play with us.

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.
