Roy Harris Symphony No 3 Speaker symbol

Holst Suite ‘The Planets’ Speaker symbol

Following Bernstein’s scintillatingly offbeat overture to Candide, we present an underrated masterpiece, Harris’ magnificently energetic, occasionally brooding yet always glorious (single-movement) Third Symphony. We follow this with the mercurial Holst's self-described ‘mood pictures’ – his Herculean tour de force, The Planets.

Centenary

Dear Concertgoer! We need your help! Our 2018/2019 season will be the Orchestra’s hundredth! Please contact us with your reminiscences and memories of the Orchestra’s past.  Our aim is to prepare a full history of the Orchestra for our centenary season.

 

Composition Competition

Composing with quillEntry to our competition competition is now Closed

If you have already submitted a composition, thank you. We are very grateful for the considerable time and effort that has gone into preparing them.

Applicants will be informed in mid-April whether their composition has been shortlisted for a rehearsal and recording in June.

The recording made of each of the finalist’s works will be sent to the finalists, but the rights will remain with the Bromley Symphony Orchestra. At the workshop final, our playing members will vote on the shortlisted works, so we will need parts prepared to a high standard, including rehearsal marks and/or bar numbers. The works will be judged on musical merit as well as on practicality of performance. They will all be conducted on the day by our conductor, Adrian Brown.

Vacancies

Empty seatsWe have a vacancy for a co-principal trombone. 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 trombone playing friends and contact us if interested.

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