Our History

Edward Elgar: The orchestra, which was founded over 100 years ago with the help of Edward Elgar, continues to recruit new players of all ages, bringing pleasure to audiences across Worcestershire. We perform at least four concerts a year.

Founded: The orchestra gave its first concert in the Public Hall on 26 April 1906, with Ivor Atkins conducting more than 100 players. Elgar assisted in drawing up the programme, and conducted occasionally in performances of his own works. His daughter, Carice, played the violin in the orchestra for many years.

Keith SladeConductor: Today, Keith Slade is Worcestershire Symphony Orchestra’s dynamic young conductor. He studied clarinet at the Royal Northern College of Music and is a former BBC Young Musician of the Year Woodwind Finalist. Keith was one of a handful of local people invited to meet HM the Queen during her visit to Worcester in 2012.  Click on the sidebar under ‘Social Profiles’ for Keith’s Twitter account.

New Members: We currently have more than 60 regular players but are always keen to hear from potential new members across all sections.
