Current Season

We are delighted to be opening 2022 with a concert in beautiful St Nicholas Church on Saturday 5th March at 7:30pm.

Two of the three pieces in the programme are celebrated favourites. Brahms chose the title, ‘Tragic Overture,’ to emphasise the turbulent, dynamic character of this piece.

Conductor Darrell Davison composed 7 Elegiac Variations to honour composers who have given us some of the finest cello repertoire. Each variation is based upon a particular composer and their work for solo cello. Soloist Liubov Ulybysheva is well-known to our Sevenoaks audience, having performed a number of times with the orchestra. She is an outstanding artist who performs widely across European concert halls and we are thrilled to have her back on our stage once again.

Sibelius called his Second Symphony ‘a confession of the soul’ and as it builds to the finale, it can’t help but stir our souls - and hearts.

Tickets are on sale direct from our website.

We look forward to seeing you at St Nicholas Church!

Our 2021-22 season continues with a Sunday evening concert in the Pamoja Hall, Sevenoaks on May 8th. Further details will be released as soon as possible.

We continue to rehearse every Wednesday evening, 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.
