Sunderland Symphony Orchestra is engaged in an exciting phase of development following celebration concerts for the charity's eighteenth year since its formation for the Millennium, supported by Sunderland City Council.

The Orchestra's "Coming of Age" project, financed by Arts Council England, is bringing new partnerships, a new pilot outreach orchestral music and instrumental education programme for school children, and varied concerts in a wider variety of performance spaces. The voluntary orchestra offers support for progression in orchestral engagement across the city. Our impact is recognised as developing orchestral music education and enjoyment through new partnerships in and around Sunderland.

Do join us at our Autumn concert at The Point in Sunderland
