Welcome to Henley Symphony Orchestra
The Henley Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1970 and we are now one of the leading amateur orchestras in the country. We attract some 70 players from across the Thames Valley.
Under the guidance of our music director, Ian Brown, the orchestra promotes an annual series of four concerts and engages internationally acclaimed soloists, providing high-quality classical music for the enjoyment of local concert goers.
The orchestra was originally brought together to give a concert in a large marquee at Shiplake College one summer but the success of that concert led to the establishment of the orchestra on a permanent footing.
