Promoting live orchestral performance in the community since 1922

The Farnborough Symphony Orchestra is one of the foremost non-professional orchestras in the south of England.

It has had a commitment to live performance of music in the North East Hampshire region since its formation in 1922 as the Royal Aircraft Establishment Orchestral Society. It now performs four concerts every season, regularly attracting high-quality national and international soloists, and is the holder of the 2011 Pat Devereux award for contributions to the Performing Arts in the Borough of Rushmoor.

Upcoming concerts

On 13th June Christopher McMullen-Laird was to have conducted the incredible Nobilissima Visione by Hindemith and Dvorak’s ground-breaking evocation of the landscapes and songs of the United States – his Symphony No. 9. Unfortunately this concert has had to be cancelled due to the Covid-19 crisis. Do check back to see our programme for the 2020/21 season, which is due to be announced in the coming weeks.
