The Brentwood Philharmonic Orchestra (BPO) brings together professional musicians and experienced amateurs from the Brentwood area and further afield to perform four concerts a year in and around Brentwood, Essex.
 
Come and play in the BPO

 

The BPO rehearses twice a week for a month before each concert: Sundays 2.30 - 5.00 pm and Tuesdays 7.45 - 9.45 pm at Brentwood Ursuline Convent High School, Queens’ Road, Brentwood, Essex CM14 4EX.  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 2016-17 season is £60 with single concert subscriptions of £20 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.

 

Come to a Brentwood Philharmonic Orchestra concert and support the BPO

 

We maintain a mailing list of supporters of the BPO.  We prefer to use Twitter and email to keep our costs down.  If you would like to receive details of Brentwood Philharmonic Orchestra concerts, please follow us on Twitter @brentwoodphil or contact us.  

 

The BPO is registered as a charity.  Gifts by UK taxpayers are eligible for GiftAid.  Donations are always welcome and help the BPO put on more adventurous choices of music and maintain its standing in Brentwood’s musical life.
