Stockport Symphony Orchestra was formed in 1975 as the New Orchestra of Manchester. Over 40 years ago the orchestra accepted the offer by Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council of a permanent home in the Edwardian splendour of the Town Hall and we are now proud to celebrate more than 40 seasons as the Borough's official orchestra.
The orchestra performs eight concerts each season at the Town Hall with professional conductors and both established and rising stars of the classical music world.
We are thrilled to announce the soloist for our final concert of this season.
Joanna MacGregor has appeared with the world's leading orchestras, performing in over eighty countries, and is a regular broadcaster, making numerous appearances at the BBC Proms.
Tickets include free parking at Lacy Street car park behind the Town Hall
Tickets for regular concerts £15 or £13 (concessionary)
Full-time students under 22 £5
Accompanied children under 16 can attend most of our concerts for free and for £5 for our performance in December.

If you attend the first concert and decide you would like to purchase one of our season tickets we will credit the cost of your ticket for that night against your season ticket purchase. Please contact the Box Office number or come and see us at the stand at the back of the Hall at the interval or end of the concert.
Sadly, none of us can predict how the continuing coronavirus pandemic might affect the holding of public events. With that in mind:
Our ability to sell tickets on the doors may be affected so that numbers and flow-through can be properly managed. To avoid disappointment please buy early. There’s an an added incentive to planning ahead too; if audience numbers have to be cut to fewer tickets than already sold, this will be done on a last bought, first out basis!
All our concerts will be undertaken in accordance with regulations in force at the time and in co-operation with the Town Hall’s events team to make our venue as safe as it can be. Your co-operation with any restrictions or special requirements which may in future be required such as proof of vaccination or immunity is greatly appreciated and we will try to give you as much warning as possible.
We hope it will be possible to provide refreshments in the intervals at our concerts but that is dependent on the venue management and evolving legislation may prevent or restrict that. We apologise in advance should that be the case.
Changes in rules, travel restrictions and other circumstances may mean that we have to change programmes and/or performers, at short notice. Where we have your contact details we will try to keep you informed of such changes.
In the event that a concert has to be cancelled or restrictions mean that your seat can no longer be occupied you will receive a refund of your ticket price from Ticketsource if purchased though our online booking system or from us if booked direct.
