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.
On two occasions the orchestra has been the recipient of a Performing Right Society National Federation of Music Societies Enterprise Award.
The Surrey Philharmonic Orchestra and the Surrey Philharmonic Chamber Ensemble are both part of the Surrey Philharmonic Society, which is a member of Making Music.
The performance of Cristian Sandrin, the soloist in our February concert, was sponsored by the Countess of Munster Musical Trust.
