Welcome to Exeter Symphony Orchestra
STOP PRESS - CORONA VIRUS
PLEASE NOTE - THE SPRING CONCERT IS NOW CANCELLED. FULL REFUNDS ARE OBTAINABLE THROUGH TICKETSOURCE. THANKYOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT.
Sadly, our Summer Concert has now also been cancelled. We will get back to playing together as soon as we are able. We wish all our supporters well and look forward to seeing you all soon.
We are an amateur, member-led group, and a leading symphony orchestra in the City of Exeter. We have recently appointed a new conductor, Arturo Serna, following Brian Northcott's retirement after 15 years of service. The members are involved in choosing and developing the musical programme for each year, which we hope is a balance between true classics and also more modern and perhaps lesser known pieces.
The orchestra is composed of people with very different musical backgrounds and interests, who simply enjoy the fun and camaraderie of playing in the ensemble. They do, though, all have in common a true love of ESO combined with a genuine desire to see the orchestra excel in its performances, reach out to the City and play a significant part in the culture and life of Devon’s capital. As we like to say, ESO plays in the heart of Exeter!
