Welcome to the Slough Philharmonic 75th anniversary season
For details of the 2016-17 season see the Concert Diary page.
Sam Armstrong delighted the audience with Beethoven's fourth piano concerto at Centenary Hall, Caldicott School. As part of a collaboration with the school he and the orchestra give a special concert for the pupils including the first movement from Beethoven's 5th Symphony from last November's programme.
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. 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.
