Coronavirus update

Dear BSO Supporters

When I last posted a message here in December, we thought we might be in a position to resume rehearsing in the New Year. But we have been overtaken by events again and the March concert is now cancelled too.

We remain hopeful that the 15 May concert will go ahead. If so, it will almost certainly be a simpler programme than planned, and we may even put on two performances in quick succession on the same night so that more of you are able to attend (in a socially-distanced, smaller audience). For obvious reasons, the normal seating/ticketing arrangements will be suspended – but we will let you know nearer the time how things might proceed.

We also have 13 June booked at Langley, originally for a children’s concert. If May cannot happen then the June date may be a back-up for us to resume musical performances to our loyal audience!

Keep safe and well – and see you soon.

As ever, if you have any questions, do feel free to get in touch ( or use the feedback form here.

Mike Ibbott
Chair, BSO

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


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.
