Chair’s Report Spring 2020

Since our last concert and the virtual AGM that so many of you participated in.

The document attached HERE outlines the actions taken by the committee and a wider group of orchestra members.


Thank you to all SSO Members

Marching and Waltzing was a beautiful concert. Thank you all!

This is what Musical Director David Milner had to say:

“Thank you once again for another brilliant concert. The SSO seem to have a great ability to produce the goods during adversity, remember Peter & the Wolf! Prior to the concert we anticipated that audience numbers would be well down, but doesn’t it show what a high regard our audience have for us in turning out in the numbers they did. When I took over as conductor I acknowledged the great work done by Paul and I would like to reiterate that now, I feel very privileged to be building on that work. Lastly two things I would like to share, Ian (viola)  told me during tea what a wonderful group of players we are and how welcomed he felt. Sam (percussion - remember his cymbal crashes) said he had never played with an orchestra before, only wind bands and how much he had enjoyed this first experience. The concert was a special moment in the orchestra’s history with David and Kathleen’s presentation, thank you for letting me be a part of that.”   - David Milner, 15.3.20


Public Health

Owing to the Covid-19 pandemic we are postponing all our live rehearsals, workshops and concerts until public health directives inform us that public gatherings are safe.

In the meantime, Sunderland Symphony Orchestra is developing a range of public-facing online initiatives in which members will be able to engage. Please check this site and our Facebook and Twitter pages for updates.

We hope you are all keeping safe and well at home and look forward to welcoming you to our next live rehearsals.

Rehearsals normally every Wednesday evening from 7.30pm.
We hope that the Red Sky Ball will now take place at a future date.
