About Us

139 years old, the Halifax Symphony Orchestra is one of the UK’s oldest non-professional orchestras. Now in our 140th concert season the Orchestra is looking forward to 2020/21 with confidence and optimism.
Members come from all walks of life from within and around Calderdale and beyond, and share a passion for playing together. The players are variously teachers, semi-professionals, and retired professionals along with a positive group of dedicated amateurs.
