The Warwickshire Symphony Orchestra sends you virtual greetings for the festive season!
After the popularity of our recording of The Radetsky March made and released during the first lockdown, the WSO has gathered its forces once again to record Prokofieve’s Troika.

This on-line performance has been seen by thousands and has been selected by the British Library for inclusion in its collection of audio and video documentation of creative performances produced under lockdown. The archive will preserve a picture of these times, for the future interest of scholars and the general public.

WE REGRET that due to the present restrictions brought in because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, both our rehearsal space and our performance venues are closed.
We were scheduled to play Brahms’ German Requiem in Coventry Cathedral on November 14th as part of the concert commemorating the 90th anniversary of the bombing of Coventry. This concert has now been cancelled. Sadly, we have also had to cancel our annual Family Concert this year.
We were able to gather members of the WSO together for a play day on 17th October in All Saints’ Church: it was a great joy for members to be able to make music together, albeit carefully socially distanced.
On 13th March 2021 we hope to be at Warwick Hall for a concert
12th June 2021 our summer concert will be in St. Mary’s Warwick
