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 you to our Film Music concert on Sunday February 11, 2017 at 3:00pm in Saffron Hall. Back by popular demand, we will be presenting an afternoon of film music featuring scores from some of your favourite movies. There’ll be plenty of tunes to whistle on the way home as we take you on a tour of some of the greatest films ever made with music by some of the greatest composers ever to write for the silver screen. The programme is currently expected to include: Ben Hur Overture, Lord of the Rings Suite, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Out of Africa, Up!, Braveheart, Wallace and Gromit, and more...!

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.
