wrexham symphony orchestra
Welcome to Wrexham Symphony Orchestra’s website.
Thank you for your support at our recent concert of Mendelssohn, Schumann and Brahms, which was a great start to our forty eighth season of concerts.
The Orchestra has already begun work on its next programme, “Music from the North and South”. This concert, on Saturday 25th February 2017, pairs two works by the Scandinavian composers Grieg and Nielsen with pieces set in or inspired by southern Europe. Please note that the performance of a suite from Bizet’s “Carmen” is a change to the earlier advertised programme. More details can be found on our Concerts page here, along with what will eventually become a comprehensive list of previous concerts.
Later this season, 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. Tickets for this special concert will be available for purchase during our February and May concerts and can also be bought online at www.britishironworkcentre.co.uk.
The Orchestra have now also performed the first seven Mahler symphonies, with only Eight and Nine to go. Our Mahler concert series is 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. We are currently planning a return to Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall in 2018, to play the Eighth Symphony, the “Symphony of a Thousand”.
For Orchestra members, there’s a rehearsal schedule on the Members page.
There is plenty of additional information about the Orchestra on our other web pages (see menu above) and on our Facebook group, Twitter feed -
