Welcome to Surrey Philharmonic

If you are an orchestral musician who would like to join us, please go to Joining SPO. If you’d like to support the orchestra in other ways please go to Friends or Sponsors. Please note that the Amazon link at the foot of each page is yet another way to support us.

UPDATE Sadly the coronavirus outbreak lost us all our concerts from May 2020 to May 2021. To bring us together again after this long enforced break, we have provisionally scheduled informal rehearsals for 13, 20 and 27 July 2021, subject of course to government restrictions being relaxed according to plan. These will start at 7.45 pm at St George’s Church, Barnett Wood Lane, Ashtead KT21 2DA.

About the Surrey Philharmonic Orchestra

The Surrey Philharmonic Orchestra began life as the Surrey String Players in 1932 when it was founded by Kathleen Riddick. In 1945 it expanded to become the Surrey Philharmonic Orchestra. Throughout its history many international artists have appeared with the orchestra, including Vladimir Ashkenazy, Jacqueline du Pré, Paul Tortelier, Steven Isserlis, Nigel Kennedy and Evelyn Glennie.

The performance of Dominic Degavino, the soloist in our February 2022 concert, is sponsored by the Countess of Munster Musical Trust.
