We will be marking the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme with a screening of a 1916 film with live orchestral score. It should be a memorable evening.
A new event for Stockport. Our competition for young musicians has attracted early interest from France, Venezuela, Morocco and Hong Kong. The finale will be three concertos played with the orchestra at the Town Hall on 4 March.
BREXITED! OUT BUT NOT DOWN
In June we were forced to move from our usual concert venue to make way for the referendum vote being organised in the Town Hall. The move to St George's church proved to be a challenge to which the SSO team rose magnificently.
As well as our usual eight concerts in the Town Hall we revisit Gorton Monastery on 27 June 2017 to team up with the fabulous St George’s Singers and conductor Neil Taylor for their end of season spectacular. This year it’s Verdi.
Get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!

In 1978 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 proud to celebrate our 39th season as the Borough's official orchestra. The orchestra performs eight concerts each season at the Town Hall and also appears elsewhere during the year.
