Solihull Symphony Orchestra is a lively and enthusiastic group of non-professional musicians who enjoy taking on the challenge of a diverse and varied repertoire. Our members span an age range from under 18 to over 80. Since September 2013, Jon Malaxetxebarria has been our Music Director and Principal Conductor.
The orchestra began life as an evening class in Solihull, becoming Knowle Sinfonia in 1990 with the late Malcolm Peters as its conductor. Martin Leigh became the orchestra’s first professional Music Director in 2001.
In January 2005, the orchestra changed its name to the Solihull Symphony Orchestra.
