The Sevenoaks Symphony Orchestra is made up of 70 local musicians with a professional conductor and leader. We are set up as a charity. Our aim is to make live orchestral music available locally, so we are delighted to share some recent audience reactions :
“A joy to see so many enthusiastic, talented, committed people enjoying playing together ”
“...a really beautiful sound and carefully phrased lyricism from the strings; a superb atmosphere generated and held’”
“...how great last night’s concert was... Symphony From the New World is one of my all-time favourites and you guys smashed it! ”
Our three subscription concerts each season focus particularly on 19th and 20th century masterpieces which are attractive and enjoyable for our audiences, and at the same time interesting and challenging for us as players. In addition we present our very popular Family Concerts in October and a Taste of Classics concert in the New Year, a short mid-week concert with complimentary glass of wine.
Most of our concerts take place in the Stag Sevenoaks, our local theatre. We rehearse each Wednesday from 8-10.15pm at Sevenoaks Primary School.

In 2020, the Sevenoaks Symphony Orchestra will celebrate the 75th anniversary of its first concert which took place in May 1945.
We look forward to an exciting programme, full details are here on our website and also in our printed brochure..
We begin with four pieces from Copland's ballet Rodeo which includes some well known tunes. We then play the Rhapsody for Alto Saxophone by Debussy, a lovely piece of music that lets our soloist, Manu Brazzo, display his relaxed virtuosity.
Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings finishes the first half and our concert continues with the excitement of Prokofiev's 5th Symphony.
It’s a delightful programme and tickets are available on the Stag Theatre web site or from the Stag box office: 01732 450175.
