Following the four Saturday evening concerts, we were blessed with glorious sunshine on the afternoon of 20 May for an orchestral concert of uplifting popular classics with an extended interval for summer drinks. Slough Philharmonic is grateful to Caldicott School for allowing us to use their hall and grounds for this event and we look forward to returning there next March for another concert, including Tchaikovsky's piano concerto. As on the previous two occasions parts of that concert will be repeated for the school pupils and parents.

‘It was a huge pleasure playing with you all…‘ Sam Armstong, pianist, March 2017
‘ gave us a wonderful evening's entertainment, and I look forward to coming to the next concert...’ Audience letter received, November 2017

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.
