Essex Symphony Orchestra Reg. Charity No. 1000732

Site last updated on 15 May 2020

The Essex Symphony Orchestra is a Chelmsford based Orchestra typically performing 4 to 5 concerts each season.  Formed in 1949 we try to choose adventurous programmes and have the resources to bring to our audiences the large symphonic works of the 19th and 20th centuries.  Over the years we have been able to bring to Chelmsford some of the finest international soloists and in addition we have provided a platform for many young artists both from Essex and the national scene.

Our Supporters

The orchestra draws on the support of a number of individuals and organisations, many of them local.  We are grateful to our Friends, both Corporate and Individual for their ongoing commitment and interest.  


We would always welcome further support through sponsorship.  We should be delighted for any individual or group to sponsor specific items such as a soloist, piano hire, music hire or programme printing.
