HomeWelcome to the website for Wrexham Symphony Orchestra.

Thank you all for your incredible support for our recent concert at the William Aston Hall. As the world remembered the fiftieth anniversary of man’s first walk on the moon in July 1969, we enjoyed a full tour of Holst’s Planets. We also welcomed Sophie Rosa who performed an unforgettable Sibelius Violin Concerto. Thanks also of course to the ever-popular conductor Richard Howarth, and Techniquest Glyndwr for co-hosting. It proved a fitting finale for our own fiftieth anniversary season, and what a season it has been. The orchestra is on a well-earned summer break now but will be back rehearsing from the beginning of September and working at new and exciting music for the fifty first season. We are already quite sure that the highlight of this will be our return to the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester, to perform Mahler’s Eighth symphony on 20 June 2020. There are pictures of our previous concert day at the Bridgewater Hall here, when we played Mahler 2 in 2015 to whet your appetite! You can read more about future and past performances at our Concerts page. You can also download the whole season leaflet here.

WSO has also been active away from the main stage. With proceeds from the Mahler concerts, members have been active with projects in with residents of Pendine Park. WSO also helped run the recent Wrexham Music Festival, in which many young people performed. You can read much more about these in our magazine “Orchestrate”. Back issues are readable through our Links page and you can now download the new edition 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.
