Founded in 1919 and celebrating 100 years of music making
The Guildford Symphony Orchestra is the borough’s premier community orchestra – the only local orchestra offering a full, large-scale symphonic repertoire. Since its foundation in 1919, the orchestra has attracted local musical talent across many generations and all walks of life. Doctors, teachers, lawyers, housewives, students, engineers, accountants and more. Everyone committed to playing great music to a consistently high standard. This is our Centenary season and we are celebrating. Join us for a very special series of concerts.

Beethoven’s Choral Symphony
Our 100th anniversary concert closely replicates our very first concert that took place on 7th October 1919. Guildford Choral will join us to perform Beethoven’s iconic 9th Symphony and Handel’s Zadok the Priest. The evening starts with Wagner’s Die Meistersinger overture followed by Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto. We are delighted that former winner of GSO’s Young Artists competition Joo Yeon Sir will be performing the violin solo. For an early taster of the exquisite musicality and technique that she will bring to this performance.
