Welcome to Shrewsbury Symphony Orchestra's Website
The Shrewsbury Symphony Orchestra (Shrewsbury Orchestral Society) is an orchestra whose roots go back for well over a century.
It gives concert performances of orchestral music in the area in and around the county town of Shropshire in England, while also providing a valuable recreation for its members.
The Orchestra currently has a regular playing strength of about 45 members, together with other guest players who are invited to augment it from time to time.
The Orchestra’s conductor is John Moore, Director of Music at Shrewsbury School. John is also an experienced composer and pianist. The Leader is freelance violinist Alex Postlethwaite.
Over the years, the Shrewsbury Symphony Orchestra has performed in various locations in and around the town. Its regular performance venues are Theatre Severn, the historic Shrewsbury Abbey and the Alington Hall at Shrewsbury School. The Orchestra normally gives three concerts each year, in late Autumn, Spring and early Summer, with additional ones on occasions.
