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 every season at the Town Hall with professional conductors and both established and rising stars of the classical music world.
