About the Society

Shrewsbury Orchestral Society was founded in 1888, making it one of the oldest amateur orchestras in the country. The Society operates as a registered charity with the purpose of "educating the public in the art and science of music".  A Committee of volunteers organise a minimum of 3 concerts each year of orchestral works usually including a symphony or other substantive work.
