Welcome to the SWSO website

Saffron Walden Symphony Orchestra (SWSO) is a community orchestra formed of both professional and amateur players based in and around Saffron Walden in the district of Uttlesforde. The Saffron Walden Orchestral Society also oversees the Saffron Walden Children's Orchestra (SWCO).

SWSO will be delighted to welcome cellist Jamal Aliyev in his Saffron Hall debut as soloist in Tchaikovsky’s beautiful Rococo Variations. The concert, at Saffron Hall  on Saturday, April 14, 2018, 7:30pm, opens with Rimsky-Korsakov’s exciting overture based on Russian folk tunes and closes with Prokofiev’s last symphony, at once romantically melodic, melancholic, but also cheeky and humorous. 

Tickets are available at:

If you are interested in joining the orchestra, please do get in touch - we are always happy to hear from new players. Many of our members travel some distance to play with us; however we are of course particularly keen to hear from musicians living near Saffron Walden or in the district of Uttlesforde.
