Concerts 2016-17

Welcome to the 125th Season of the Slaithwaite Philharmonic Orchestra.

We have a typically adventurous and exciting season of music-making for you this year. We pay homage to the past days of the organisation, with SPO’s competition success ‘Die Meistersinger’, alongside large-scale works such as Copland’s thrilling 3rd Symphony and Mahler’s monumental 2nd Symphony. We support the present day with a new commission by the wonderful Andrew McCormack as well as performing several much-loved classics, incuding Gershwin’s ‘Rhapsody in Blue’, Faure’s ‘Pavane’ and Strauss’s exhilarating ‘Don Juan’.

Do join us during this very special season and share this moment with us. Whatever your musical tastes we’re confident there is something for you, and you are all very welcome.
