Southampton Concert Orchestra
The Southampton Concert Orchestra is a full-sized amateur symphony orchestra performing from a repertoire of classical, romantic and 20th century pieces in venues across the city of Southampton and the surrounding area.
Southampton Concert Orchestra was the first full amateur symphony orchestra in Southampton. It was founded in 1964 by Trevor Morgan, a local musician and teacher who trained at the Royal College of Music as a violinist, conductor and composer.

WHAT OUR AUDIENCE SAY...
"I loved your concert in Romsey Abbey on 16 July. Great pieces - i have seen the Leningrad Symphony live a few times, including by the then Leningrad Philharmonic under Mariss Jansons. I found your performance as thrilling as any.
Loved the way you took the risks and totally went for it."
