wrexham symphony orchestra
Welcome to Wrexham Symphony Orchestra’s website.
Welcome also to a new season of concerts, which begin on November 26th, conducted by Nic Fallowfield and with eminent cello soloist Tim Gill of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. He will be performing the Schumann concerto, and the orchestra will also be playing Mendelssohn’s “Ruy Blas” Overture and Brahms’s first symphony.
You can download a poster for our concert here.
The orchestra have now also performed the first seven Mahler symphonies, with only Eight and Nine to go. All the symphonies have been generously sponsored by Betrinac, and all proceeds from the concert have gone to dementia charities. A sum well into five figures has already been raised though these concerts, and most recently a cheque for £3000 was donated to the Wrexham Memory Clinic at the Maelor Hospital in Wrexham. This resulted in the orchestra being shortlisted for an Arts and Business Cymru 2016 award. A return to Bridgewater Hall in 2018 to play the eighth symphony, “Symphony of a Thousand”, is already in the planning stage.
For orchestra members there’s a rehearsal schedule in the Members section.
It is always good to remind ourselves of that fantastic day back in May 2015 when the orchestra played Mahler 2 at Bridgewater Hall, Manchester. There is a gallery of photos by Mark Carline available to see here.
There is plenty of information about the orchestra on its Facebook group, Twitter feed -
