The Henley Symphony Orchestra

8. 7. 2017
Bled Festival Hall

The Henley Symphony Orchestra
was founded in 1970 and is now one of the leading amateur orchestras in Britain. The orchestra attracts some 70 players from Henley-on-Thames and its surrounding area. 

Under the guidance of its 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. Ian Brown has been conducting the orchestra for over 20 years and brings his wealth of expertise as conductor, chamber musician and solo pianist to its development and continued success.

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. The HSO has good friends in Henley’s twin towns of Falaise, France and Leichlingen, Germany and has given successful concerts in both locations under the auspices of the Henley Twinning Association. The HSO is delighted to be making its first twinning visit to Bled this year.
