The Brentwood Philharmonic Orchestra is a leading Essex orchestra bringing together professional musicians and experienced amateurs from Brentwood and further afield to perform three main symphony concerts a year in and around Brentwood, Essex.
Come and play in the Brentwood Philharmonic Orchestra

If you are looking for an Essex orchestra to join, the Brentwood Philharmonic Orchestra rehearses at Brentwood Ursuline Convent High School, Queen's Road, Brentwood, Essex CM14 4EX twice a week for a month before each concert: Sundays 2.30 - 5.00 pm and Tuesdays 7.45 - 9.45 pm.  With busy schedules, we recognise that not everyone can make every rehearsal. Two of the rehearsals are usually for strings only.


The BPO's annual subscription for players for the 2018-19 season is £72 with single concert subscriptions of £24 per concert (with concessions half price). For UK tax payers, subscriptions are eligible for GiftAid.  New players do not pay for their first concert with the BPO. If you would like to play in the BPO (no audition required), please contact us.
