robert... to the Crowthorne Symphony Orchestra website.

We are an amateur orchestra based in Crowthorne, Berkshire, and have attracted our membership from Bracknell, Wokingham, Camberley, Ascot, Reading, and as far afield as Maidenhead, Aldershot, Newbury, Woking, Guildford and Andover. We are an enthusiastic, friendly group who make music for enjoyment’s sake, but who take rehearsals, practice and concerts seriously. Players are of all ages and come from all walks of life.

Our Director of Music is Robert Roscoe, who joined us in 2007. Under Robert’s leadership, the Orchestra has performed varied and challenging programmes including popular classics as well as less well-known pieces. We regularly invite soloists to join us.

Why don’t you come along to our next concert? If you are a competent player (even if you haven't played for a while and would like to get back to it) and would like to join us, or would just like to know more about the Orchestra then please browse this site or get in touch.


Welcome Back!
Book Now for our November 27th Concert
We are absolutely delighted to invite you to book tickets for our November concert - the first we have been able to perform for nearly two years! And we are extremely fortunate that our soloists for the Brahms Double Concerto - Molly Cockburn and Michael Atkinson - had our concert date free in their busy schedules. We were only a couple of weeks away from the 2020 concert which included this work when lockdown happened so it is exciting that we will finally be able to perform it with them. To complete the concert Robert has programmed Brahms' Tragic Overture and the much-loved 2nd Symphony of Sibelius.

We have put in a range of safety precautions for this concert, and our regular audience will notice a few changes which include a larger stage and a smaller audience so we can space out the players, and an area of socially distanced seating which can be booked by anyone on a first come first served basis. Unfortunately we've decided it's best not to offer interval refreshments to avoid crowding (though you are welcome to bring your own), but on the positive side your ticket now includes a printed programme. Full details of all changes are listed before you buy your tickets (click here or the BUY TICKETS button to go to the page). For this concert we are selling ALL tickets via this ticketing site which allows us to monitor numbers and also to contact everyone, should the need arise. Tickets will not be available on the door or through any local outlets this time. We'll keep a close eye on how everything works, and would welcome your feedback, as obviously this is a new situation for us all. We are all very much looking forward to our return to The Old Gym on November 27th and hope to see you there.
