Henley Symphony Orchestra are friends and partners of HMS. Together we promote concerts, and events with a shared ethos that music should be available to all, we hope to encourage and inspire musicians everywhere.
H.S.O. was founded in 1970 and is now one of the leading amateur orchestras in the country. It attracts some 70 players from across the Thames Valley. Under the guidance of their 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.
Summer Camp was fully funded by the Wates Foundation, making it possible for all children to attend. It was a huge hit, with over 70 children attending each day.
