Sunderland Symphony Orchestra is entering a new and exciting phase in the charity's eighteenth year since its formation for the Millennium celebrations, supported by Sunderland City Council.

The Orchestra's "Coming of Age" project, financed by Arts Council England, will bring new partnerships, a new outreach music and instrumental education programme for school children, and varied concerts in a wider variety of performance spaces. 

Do join us to continue the celebrations at our Spring and Summer concerts.
