Welcome to the Slough Phil 2017/18 season

For a listing of the concerts see the Concert Diary page.

Simon Allen delighted us on Saturday 11th November with his performance of Binge's concerto for Alto Saxophone and the first performance of a specially written piece as an encore. The concert ended with Rachmaninov's second symphony.

Later this season we perform Rachmaninov’s second Piano Concerto and Handel’s Messiah – two all time audience favourites. We have  works by Puccini, Tchaikovsky together with a some wonderful, but less often played pieces.

Thanks to generous support for our Soloists’ Fund you will hear some superb guest artists including pianist Alexander Ullman saxophonist Simon Allen and high quality vocal soloists.

Following the four Saturday evening concerts, we end the season in lighter mood with a Sunday afternoon popular Orchestral Concert and an English Sunday Afternoon Tea Concert with the chorus.

‘It was a huge pleasure playing with you all…‘ Sam Armstong, pianist, March 2017
‘It has been really wonderful playing with you and I enjoyed the performance greatly.’ Akiko Ono, violinist, November 2016

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.
