wrexham symphony orchestra

Welcome to the website for Wrexham Symphony Orchestra. Thank you for your great support at our recent concert “An Afternoon At the Ballet”. It was fabulous to see so many people there and we hope you all enjoyed your afternoon and that the children enjoyed their treats.

The concert was the first of two parts and coming soon on February 24th is the follow-up “A Night At The Opera”. Russell Gray remains at the podium and we are very fortunate to welcome, performing with us for the first time, the celebrated North Wales Opera Studio. The opera concert is a celebration of both Glyndŵr University’s tenth anniversary and our own twentieth anniversary as symphony orchestra in residence. The singers will be semi-staging each of the operas on the stage and the orchestra moved to the floor of the auditorium. As a result there is a restricted view of the orchestra from the balcony.


The celebratory nature of this concert, combined with its attractive content, means there is little chance of being able to buy tickets on the evening. You can buy tickets here though, and as you can see that in a change to usual policy you can decide exactly where you want to sit. There is a dedicated Night At The Opera Facebook Page which you can view here.

You can download a PDF of the opera concert poster here, and also the alternative poster here.

As you will read below, this is followed by one of our most ambitious undertakings to date, the momentous ninth symphony of Gustav Mahler. You can find details on our Concerts page here, along with what will eventually become a comprehensive list of previous concerts. You can also download the season leaflet here.

Our Mahler series if nearly complete now, and we will be performing his Earth-shattering Ninth symphony at the William Aston Hall on May 19th 2018. The series will be completed with a return to the Bridgewater Hall in May 2020 to play the Eighth Symphony, “Symphony Of A Thousand”. Our Mahler concert series has been generously sponsored by Cobalz, 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.

There is plenty of additional information about the Orchestra on our other web pages (see menu above) and on our Facebook group, Twitter feed - @wrexhamorch and Facebook page. If you want to contact the Orchestra, please do so through wrexhamso@gmail.com.
