Aviva Community Fund

The orchestra has been in existence since 1984. Some of the instruments need replacing and we need to acquire new percussion instruments. Most orchestral players provide their own instruments, but it is different with percussion - normally the orchestra buys them. The instruments we most need are a xylophone, cymbals with a stand and a snare drum.

Unfortunately, the orchestra was unsuccessful in acheiving enough votes, but nevertheless, the orchestra will receive £300 from Aviva for submitting our application, and again, we thank everyone who voted for us.

Welcome to our 2018/19 season.

We have another exciting season of orchestral music coming up this year.

We start off with a concert to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1 which will include the idyllic Pastoral Symphony by Vaughan Williams with the young tenor soloist Jack Evans. We will also be joined in this concert by players from Wymondham High School.

At Christmas, we will again be putting on a children's concert, this year in Central Hall, Wymondham, with children from Spooner Row Primary School.

For our March concert, we have an exciting programme of Russian music and will be joined by Dylan Latham, finalist in Norfolk Young Musician of the Year 2017, to perform the wonderful violin concerto by Tchaikovsky.

To round off the season, we are joined by clarinettist Koren Wilmer, who is no stranger to our audiences, to perform Gerard Finzi's Clarinet Concerto. The programme also includes Fenland Images, composed by our music director, Andrew Parnell, and the beautiful and ever popular Enigma Variations by Elgar.

Details of all these concerts can be found on our Concerts page.

All adult tickets are £14, with children under 16 a mere £2. Members of our Friends scheme (and their friends!), pay just £10. See our Friends page for more details of the benefits of becoming a Friend of the Orchestra.

Wymondham Symphony Orchestra...

 is a friendly, lively and ambitious group of musicians that plays regular concerts at a variety of locations within the Norfolk area. We have received much critical acclaim for our sensitive and involving perfomances.

 We attract members from all walks of life and provide them with the satisfaction of playing in an ensemble that has the skill and confidence to play exciting and demanding works.

We have built up an enviable reputation, and are able to attract professional soloists of the highest calibre. We also encourage young talented soloists from Norfolk to play with us, often their first concerto with a symphony orchestra.

Generally, we play three concerts a year, although we occasionally undertake additional events. We also hold an annual Open Rehearsal (see the Rehearsals page for more details) and have regular social events. It’s not just about making music - we also like to have fun!
