Aldworth Philharmonic Orchestra

We’re a famously-friendly, welcoming and inclusive orchestra based in Reading.

We present three concerts per year, plus occasional extra concerts, workshops, festival performances and other events. As well as giving great performances, we try to dispel the myth that classical music is stuffy and elitist.

Our programming is adventurous, with a wide range of styles from a variety of periods and composers, and less-known works alongside the popular classics. We especially love performing music by living composers, and have commissioned nearly 30 new works from our young composers award winners over the last 15 years.
