Welcome to the Slough Philharmonic 75th anniversary season
For details of the 2016-17 season see the Concert Diary page.
Our thanks go to Akiko Ono who delighted us all on 12th November with the Glazunov Violin concerto and Vaughan Williams’ beautiful The Lark Ascending. Together with Beethoven's 5th Symphony this was a very memorable evening.
The Christmas concert will be in Eton College’s splendid School Hall where, after Mendelssohn's uplifting choral symphony: Hymn of Praise, you can join us in some Carols.
In March we are pleased to be invited to use Centenary Hall at Caldicott School, near Farnham Common, which proved a popular venue for last year’s post-season concerts. In May for Mozart's Requiem we return to the excellent auditorium of St. Bernard’s Catholic Grammar School in Langley Road, with seating arranged to get close to the performers. Both of these venues have easy access and good on-site car parking. CLICK HERE for further venue details.

Slough Philharmonic has been rooted in the community for more than 70 years from its visionary war-time birth to its current dynamic involvement with the town’s schools and music-lovers throughout the area. The chorus and orchestra were founded in 1941 by SEGRO (then Slough Estates Ltd) which despite the outbreak of World War Two in 1939 pursued a far-sighted policy enabling people to enjoy artistic, cultural and sporting activities locally. Slough Phil is still generously supported by SEGRO plc. Its twin structure of orchestra and chorus is its strength, allowing members to perform a hugely-varied repertoire (see our concerts page) from the great symphonies, showpiece concertos and choral works to pop classics, musicals, jazz and opera.
