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 you to our "Around the World in 60 Minutes" family concert on Sunday October 1, 2017 at 3:00pm in Saffron Hall. We will be up, up and away on our world tour of gorgeous classical music inspired by every continent (except Antarctica – too cold!). As the orchestra plays, James Mayhew will create his beautiful illustrations on stage, capturing the musical spirit of each land we visit.
At the end of the performance, James’s paintings will be raffled, raising funds for Edlumino Education Aid, providing schooling to children in refugee camps around the world.

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.
