Bromley Symphony Orchestra is a large, friendly, successful amateur orchestra based in south London with a reputation for interesting concerts of almost professional standard. We welcome applications from new members, patrons and helpers.

AGM postponed

The AGM is postponed while logistics are sorted – possibly until the end of May.

Coronavirus update

Dear BSO supporters

I hope you are coping with lockdown somehow, despite the lack of live music, and that you are keeping well.

We have taken the inevitable decision to cancel the May concert.  Most of you are subscription holders who will have paid for three concerts so we hope that you will be content for us to hang onto your monies despite the curtailed season.  If you need a refund for the final concert then please write to our treasurer, Peter Bruce (treasurer@bromleysymphony.org), including your ticket reference and account details (name, account number and sort-code).

As for the future, it seems likely that concerts will be one of the last activities to come out of lockdown (along with theatre/entertainment generally and the hospitality sector), so there is a high chance that we will not start next season on time.  We may only resume with the January concert (assuming we can rehearse before Christmas).  We will obviously monitor wider events and keep you in the loop.  Please keep an eye on the website.

Adrian and Margaret send their best wishes to you all.  They are getting support from their family, and Adrian seems to be working through his extensive library of scores and recordings and thinking of new repertoire for you to hear when we resume!

In the meantime, do get in touch (chair@bromleysymphony.org) or use the feedback form here if you have any questions about BSO matters – and keep well!

Mike Ibbott

Details of future concerts will be shown here as soon as confirmed dates are available.

Vacancies

Empty seats We have a vacancy for a principal trumpet. Rehearsals are on Monday evenings in Bromley. Positions like these with an excellent non-professional orchestra don’t come up very often so please tell your trumpet playing friends and contact us if interested.

We also have vacancies for harps. Most other instruments have a waiting list.
