The orchestra was delighted to bring an outdoor concert to Shrewsbury Castle this July, welcoming a full house for an evening of favourite short pieces (Verdi, Elgar, Strauss, Sibelius and much more!).

Mountains have been moved to get us up and running again after lockdown, with great thanks to our brilliant chairman Jon Box, leader Alex Postlethwaite and conductor John Moore. Socially distanced rehearsals have been held at Bayston Hill Memorial Hall.

The result - a magical evening of music in the blazing sunshine against the spectacular setting of Shrewsbury Castle! It was wonderful to see so many families and children enjoying the evening and we are determined to bring more concerts right into the heart of Shrewsbury.

We are currently planning our next concert season, starting in the autumn 2021. The castle concert was made possible thanks to support from Shropshire Council and Shrewsbury BID.
