Newbury Symphony Orchestra

About the Orchestra

Newbury Symphony Orchestra is one of the oldest non-professional orchestras in England and is now enjoying its 135th season. Our resident professional conductor is Dr Jonathan Williams and our leader Wendy Clark.

A major objective of NSO is to encourage young and up-and-coming soloists by inviting them to perform concertos. Soloists John Lill and Barry Tuckwell have gone on to achieve international acclaim after performing with the orchestra.

The Newbury Symphony Orchestra is affiliated toMaking Music, which represents and supports amateur performing societies throughout the UK and is grateful for the generous support of the Friends of Newbury Symphony Orchestra.
