Founded in 1949, the Orpington Symphony Orchestra is now in its 72nd Season.
The orchestra is now a fully independent organisation although it originally came under the auspices of Orpington and District Adult Education Centre, subsequently becoming part of Bromley Adult Education College. Throughout its life, the orchestra has been supported by Bromley Arts Council Orpington.
The orchestra has established a regular pattern of three concerts: one in December, one in March, and the final concert of the season, in June.
Concerts are held at the All Saints Church, Bark Hart Road, Orpington BR6 0QD.
Rehearsals are held in Petts Wood on Thursday evenings.
