40 YEARS AND COUNTING
It’s the 40th anniversary of our first concert at the Town hall as Stockport Symphony Orchestra in October
Our international competition for young musicians attracted interest from all over the world and concluded with a three concerto final last March won by cellist Konstantin Bruns who returns to play with us again in November
TAKE ME TO YOUR LEADER
The SSO is delighted to announce that Helen Brackley Jones has agreed to become the orchestra’s leader for the new season and will be playing in all but the May concert as well as taking on a taxing solo role in March

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 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.
