The four Main Season concerts have now finished leaving us with memories of great music from the classical repertoire, locally and to a high standard. Thanks to generous support for our soloists’ fund we heard some superb guest artists. Who could forget Akiko Ono's dazzling performance of Saint-Saens violin concerto no.3 ?

On 7th May we were honoured to have composer Jonathan Dove and Rosemary van Allen, the commissioner of the work at the performance of There Was a Child.

‘… Thank you so much for this beautiful, heartfelt performance.‘

Jonathan Dove, composer, May 2016

... What a privilege to sing with you all and in such an exciting, challenging and emotional work.’ 

Louise Turner, soprano guest artist, May 2016


Join us for some wonderful music again next season! For details of the 2016-17 season see the Concert Diary page.

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.
