Harrogate Symphony Orchestra generally performs four concerts each year. In March, June and November our programmes feature the orchestra and guests, and these concerts are in the Royal Hall. Every December we join up with Harrogate Choral Society and local schools for the ever-popular, family friendly (and very special) Harrogate Christmas Concert at the Convention Centre.
Details of our forthcoming concerts are listed below, along with a link to purchase tickets – or you can visit the Harrogate Theatre Box Office on Cambridge Street.
The younger generation
If you would like to bring children to our concerts, they will be very welcome – in fact children aged 14 and under, and accompanied by a paying adult, receive free tickets! We would only ask that parents ensure that their children’s appreciation of the performance does not affect the experience of other audience members.
Concerts start at 7:30pm and usually finish between 9:30 and 10:00pm. (The exception to this is the HCC concert, which starts at 6:00pm). Please note that to ensure that we comply with copyright and licensing rules, recordings are not permitted. However we often record our concerts and it is possible to listen to excerpts on our ‘Listen’ page.
