HomeWelcome to the website for Wrexham Symphony Orchestra, and thank you all for your support for our recent concert. It was lovely to see so many of you there for the first performance of our anniversary year. Thanks especially to maestro Leon Bosch and our soloist Rebecca Afonwy-Jones from Welsh National Opera. An exhilarating evening for all!

Without pause the orchestra now starts on its next performance, the fiftieth anniversary gala concert. The orchestra’s own Mark Lansom conducts a programme which includes Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite and Rimsky Korsakov’s Scheherezade, with renowned international concert pianist Vicky Yannoula performing Rachmaninoff’s 2nd Piano Concerto. We look forward to seeing you there on May 4thh to join our birthday celebrations!

This June sees a return for us to the British Ironwork Centre for our third Proms in the Park. Interest in the event is greater than ever before so please get your tickets well in advance. In July, as the world remembers man’s first walk on the moon in July 1969, we will enjoy a tour of Holst’s Planets, and welcome Sophie Rosa who will perform the Sibelius Violin Concerto.
