Since its founding in 1980, the English Symphony Orchestra and English String Orchestra have developed a huge array of partnerships with festivals, choral societies, concert series’s and artistic partners across the UK, and have toured the United States of America and Europe.
From 2014 the orchestra is offering a diverse array of touring programmes from our own home series’s in Malvern, Hereford and Birmingham, in partnership with some of today’s most exciting young soloists. The ESO artistic team can also work with presenters and festivals in developing tailor made programmes that suit your venue and audience.
The orchestra are regular partners with a number of leading choral societies, and are intimately familiar with all the core choral repertoire. From Bach to Verdi to Britten, the ESO can bring world-class orchestral playing to any choral concert.
The ESO team are also experienced in working with musicians outside the classical industry. Our conductors, players and arrangers have a vast experience of rock ‘n’ roll, jazz, pop and world music idioms, and we can help make your project or tour come to life as never before through the power and beauty of live orchestral music, arranged and presented to fit your style and vision.
The musicians of the ESO take every concert seriously, and the orchestra are committed to making every event a success. Our costs are remarkably competitive, and our standards are only and always world-class.
