GSO returns to live performance with an epic Brahms concert at GLive Guildford

Almost two years to the day after celebrating the Orchestra’s centenary with a barnstorming sell-out performance of Beethoven’s Choral Symphony, Guildford Choral and GSO will be performing an evening of Brahms classics, with Ein Deutsches Requiem headlining. The two titans of Guildford music join forces once more in a triumphant return to the concert stage.

The concert opens with Brahms’ mighty First Symphony – a masterpiece that took 14 years to complete and which is often referred to as ‘Beethoven’s 10th’.

We are delighted to be back performing again. Please be sure to book early for this very special event – just click on the button below to visit the G-Live Box Office.


‘From the first, the standard of performance was admirably high and very professional’

Back in 2020 the Orchestra’s annual Young Artists’ Concert, featured five young soloists each playing one piece or movement from a major orchestral work. The concert included music by Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Bizet, Rodrigo and Shostakovich. The variety of music was equally matched by the diversity of our soloists – two pianists, one violinist, a harpist and a saxophonist. Every year our audiences are dazzled by the artistry of the young musicians we showcase and our 2020 event was just as exciting.

Help Musicians – an appeal

This remains an incredibly difficult time for professional musicians. Many work on a freelance basis and continue to suffer financial hardship due to the widespread cancellation of concerts. Help Musicians is the UK’s leading musical charity and has just launched a £5m  fund to help artists suffering as a result of the Coronavirus. The GSO want to support this initiative.
