Performing Arts Symphony Orchestra


There are many aspects of the Performing Arts Symphony Orchestra which can claim to be unique: it is the only commercially viable symphony orchestra in Britain; it is the only orchestra dedicated to touring nationally; and it has a very special camaraderie, an enjoyment of making music together which is apparent in all its concerts.

The Orchestra is based in Manchester. A typical week during the summer might involve rehearsals on Thursday, leaving Manchester mid-morning on Friday and travelling over a 100 miles for a further rehearsal and concert. An overnight stay is followed by another substantial journey, rehearsal and concert, and on Sunday a third concert, often with a third different programme, returning to Manchester around one o’clock in the morning.

In recent years the Orchestra has kept a remarkably loyal membership. The diverse repertoire keeps the players committed and versatile, qualities of which they are all proud. With leader Andrew Long, the musicians return to venues full of stories of previous visits (weather, amazing gardens to see, oddball members of the audience, terrific picnics) and a sense of belonging, not only to the historic house of that day, but on a broader scale to the British summer cultural and entertainment scene.
