Current Season

Sevenoaks Symphony Orchestra is delighted to have made a start to the 2021/2022 season.

On October 17th we performed our first concert since early in 2020.  We returned to the Stag Theatre on 21st November for a stunning concert featuring four young artists. These players are  all carving out impressive solo careers and this concert was a wonderful opportunity to hear all four in a varied and exciting concerto programme.

We are making plans for a number of concerts in 2022, starting with a Saturday evening in St. Nicholas Church, Sevenoaks on March 5th, then a Sunday evening in the Pamoja Hall, Sevenoaks on May 8th. Further details will be released as soon as possible.

Our autumn rehearsals have started, on Wednesday evenings, in the usual venue of Sevenoaks Primary School, Bradbourne Park Road.  If you are an instrumentalist thinking of joining the orchestra, please use the Contact us page

We will follow Covid guidance in place at the time so we may have to adapt our rehearsals and performances.

Our supporters, season ticket holders and patrons remain very important to the orchestra and we will send out information on future plans as soon as possible.

About us 

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 at Sevenoaks Primary School. 

The SSO passed two important milestones in 2020. It is 75 years since our first concert in May 1945 and also 40 years since the first concert conducted by Darrell Davison in November 1980. Darrell has been instrumental in developing both the orchestra and our audience and he continues to be a huge asset to us all. We very much hope to celebrate these two anniversaries (belatedly) in our performances in future.
