Wolverhampton Symphony Orchestra are an amateur organisation with around 60 regular members performing a wide range of orchestral repertoire. We have been partners of the Music Hub since it began and are committed to working with young orchestral players,
We have a policy of including players of school age in the orchestra whenever possible and there is free access to the orchestra without payment by those who are in full time education. Similarly, we do not charge those in full time education for entry to any of our concerts and events.
We perform at least 3 orchestral concerts per year and also have a free playday each year to tackle large-scale works. This is open to all students and takes place at Wolverhampton Music School.
We wish to offer additional opportunities for students to play alongside our players in both rehearsal and performance.
On March 14th 2020 the soloist in Hummel’s Trumpet Concerto will be the Youth Orchestra’s Principal trumpeter, Cameron Chin-See.
On 27th June 2020 we are inviting members of Wolverhampton Youth Orchestra and Youth Wind Orchestra to join us in a concert in our usual venue, Wolverhampton Grammar School, which will include Kodaly’s famous suite Hary Janos. We are to join us in playing this piece. The young musicians will be invited to rehearse with WSO on a few occasions prior to the concert.
