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.
Stockport Symphony Orchestra was formed in 1975 as The New Orchestra of Manchester.
