The NSO performing at the Derngate Theatre in 2009.


Northampton Symphony Orchestra performs programs of classical music regularly at venues in and around Northampton.

Last night’s performance was typical. At Spinney Hill Theatre in Northampton, the 70 strong orchestra showed the skill of musicians from around the county – including Woodford.  The program included Elgar’s Violin Concerto in B Minor with featured guest soloist opens in a new windowClaire Howick and Brahms Symphony No 1 in C Minor.

The NSO has been running for over 120 years. Now performances by the NSO are a wonderful opportunity to hear live classical music performed by skilled, enthusiastic, musicians; so why not come along?

Their next concert is on Saturday 14th June at 7.30 in Spinney Hill Theatre, once again. The program features classical American music including Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and Barber’s Adagio for Strings.
