DONATE

 

The Studio Symphony Orchestra is a recognised leader in amateur music making in Northern Ireland, attracting skilled musicians from across the country and performing regular public concerts in a number of local venues. The orchestra is professionally directed by members of the Ulster Orchestra and performs to a very high standard.

The orchestra works regularly with the most talented young local musicians, providing them the opportunity to give concerto performances and gain valuable experience. It specialises in staging large scale works which deserve to be heard live but which are rarely staged professionally due to the costs involved. Browse our archive to find many examples of past performances.

We look forward to welcoming old friends and new audiences to our performances throughout the season.

Our Next Concert:

Our next performance will be a Christmas Concert on Saturday 24th November in the Island Arts Centre, Lisburn.
