The Henley Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1970 and is now one of the leading amateur orchestras in the country. It attracts some 70 players from across the Thames Valley.
Under the guidance of the musical director, Ian Brown, the orchestra promotes an annual series of four concerts and engages internationally acclaimed soloists,
providing high-quality classical music making 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.
'... such an inspiring sound... The thrilling result owed much to the consummate musicianship and command of HSO's conductor, Ian Brown... delightful dialogue between the violin and oboe in the adagio... ' (Henley Standard).
