Concerts for 2021/22 Season

 First   Last 
We are unable to proceed with our original planned programme of Havant Orchestras concerts for this season because of the risks associated with the continuing spread of the Covid-19 delta variant.  We are however hoping to start our concert season with a smaller HCO concert in October.  See the news item for details. 

Further concerts will only go ahead if the risk is reduced to a level acceptable to the committee in time to allow sufficient preparation, in which case this page will be updated accordingly.  If a concert cannot go ahead, there is a possibility that it may be rescheduled to a later date.  See the news item for more information. 

Welcome to the 2021–22 Season of concerts by The Havant Orchestras

Whether you enjoy the spectacle of a large symphony orchestra or the classic refinement of a smaller “chamber” orchestra, you’ll find that live classical music, brought to your neighbourhood at affordable prices, is well worth a try!  This is the mission of the two Havant Orchestras: to provide an opportunity for local musicians to perform together and to bring live performances to you!

Both orchestras have a solid reputation for high quality performances with outstanding soloists, including familiar local musicians, up-and-coming new talent and established international performers.

Havant Symphony Orchestra (HSO) concerts are at Oaklands Catholic School in Waterlooville, which is fortunate to have the best hall in the area for large orchestral concerts, with raked seating and excellent acoustics.

Ferneham Hall has closed for refurbishment, with plans to reopen as Fareham Live some time in 2023, so Havant Chamber Orchestra (HCO) will be performing at Holy Trinity Church on West Street, Fareham, in order to remain convenient for existing audience members.

Separate season tickets are available for the three concerts by each orchestra, with a further price reduction when season tickets are purchased for both orchestras.  Single tickets are on sale from September, after the initial season ticket seats have been allocated. 

In addition to the main program of three concerts by each orchestra, Havant Symphony Orchestra have a pre-season concert of ‘Popular Classics’ at Hayling Island Community Centre on Saturday 18th September 2021, conducted by our 2019-20 Bob Harding Bursary award holder Avi Taler

We also hope to add a Sunday afternoon family concert some time in 2022, as in 2020, but the date and details are yet to be confirmed.
