About the orchestra

 

The Halifax Symphony Orchestra is one of the UK’s oldest non-professional orchestras. Now in our 141st concert season, the Orchestra is looking forward to 2022/23 with confidence and optimism.

Members from all walks of life, within and around Calderdale and beyond share a passion for playing together. The players are variously teachers, semi-professionals and retired professionals along with a positive group of dedicated amateurs.

Halifax Orchestral Society is a registered charity 1069486 in England and Wales.
