Thank you for your incredible support for our recent concert at the William Aston Hall, in which we performed Rachmaninoff’s Third Symphony and Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto. A big thanks especially to conductor Jonathan Small and our incredible soloist William Bracken. We hope to see them both again in the near future and wish William all the best as he leaves the area to study piano at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.


Coming very soon, on Saturday June 10th 2017, the Orchestra will be headlining a Picnic Proms in the Park concert at the British Ironwork Centre, near Oswestry.


This promises to be a fabulous evening with popular classical pieces, film music and Last Night of the Proms favourites. You can bring your own picnic and prosecco and strawberries will be on sale.The Clwyd Clippers will be supporting and also joining in the Proms singalong, and the amazing virtuoso violinist Lily Whitehurst joins the orchestra for two special numbers. The event will be compered and conducted by the ever popular Richard Howarth. The evening will end with an exciting firework display!


Tickets for this special concert cost just £20 and £10 and can be bought online here.


Many thanks to the British Ironwork Centre from all at Wrexham Symphony Orchestra in advance for bringing this exciting project to fruition. More details can be found on our Concerts page here, along with what will eventually become a comprehensive list of previous concerts. You can also download a copy of our poster here.

Due to circumstances beyond our control, and in seeking to be able to put on the best possible performance in a once in a lifetime opportunity, it has been decided to postpone our Bridgewater Hall performance of Mahler’s Eighth Symphony until May 2020. In its place, we will be performing his Earth-shattering Ninth symphony instead, at the William Aston Hall, on May 19th 2018. Our Mahler concert series has been generously sponsored by Betrinac, with all profit from these concerts going to dementia charities. The amount raised so far is well into five figures, and most recently a cheque for £3,000 was donated to the Wrexham and Flintshire Memory Services at Wrexham Maelor Hospital. This resulted in the Orchestra being shortlisted for an Arts & Business Cymru Award in 2016. You can see an album of photographs of our concert day at the Bridgewater Hall here, when we played Mahler 2 in 2015.


For Orchestra members, there’s a rehearsal schedule on the Members page.


You can now download the new edition of our newsletter “Orchestrate” here.
