40 YEARS AND COUNTING

It was the 40th anniversary of our first concert at the Town hall as Stockport Symphony Orchestra in October 2017

SIYMC 2019

Our last international competition for young musicians attracted interest from all over the world. It was back in 2019 even better!  And our thanks go to U.S. choral group The Alexandria Harmonizers who appeared at the Town hall on 8 August and donated their box office share to the competition!

TAKE ME TO YOUR LEADER

The SSO is delighted that Helen Brackley Jones continues as the orchestra’s leader for another season

BLUE PETER STAR FOR CHRISTMAS

We are thrilled to be bringing Blue Peter’s Lindsey Russell to Stockport for this year’s Christmas matinée concert.  Lindsey will be presenting the programme as well as narrating that modern Christmas classic, Howard Blake’s ‘The Snowman’

Get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!

STOCKPORT’S ORCHESTRA

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 and also appears elsewhere during the year.

BOX OFFICE

Shostakovich was in Leningrad when the siege of that city began. “Neither savage raids, German planes, nor the grim atmosphere of the beleaguered city” could hinder the flow of his 7th symphony.  We contrast it tonight with Bruchs sublime violin concerto
