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, including an amazing sold out Christmas concert. Our next concert is on Saturday 25 March with Rachmaninov’s popular Symphonic Dances together with Festive Overture by Shostakovich and The Sorcerers’ Apprentice by Dukas which featured in Disney’s Fantasia. The concert also includes Dance of the Seven Veils from Salome by Strauss, one of the boldest, most original and most provocative scores ever written. For more details, visit our concerts page.
