2018 is our 38th season

 We are archiving details (programmes, photos, reviews etc) of concerts. It is a work in progress.

You will find them by going to the Events tab and then archived details. To help you, for example,

here is a link to our choral concert Brahms' Requiem on 19 March 2017 with Graham Jones conductor Lisa Wigmore leader

Click on the Events tab also for a list of all concerts (from our first one in January 1980) which can be sorted according to date, composer, work etc.

Click on the Orchestra tab for a gallery of photographs of the orchestra.

Please contact concertmanager@eso.org.uk or 07780 993801 for more information. 

The orchestra always welcomes new players and we are keen to hear from anyone who is interested in joining us. 
We are particularly keen to fill spaces in our brass, percussion and string sections.
