The Norwich Philharmonic Society was established in 1841 and has remained at the heart of the city’s musical life ever since. With a full-size symphony orchestra and a mixed chorus of some 120 voices, the Society performs a wide repertoire of large-scale works, joined by guest soloists of the highest calibre. ‘The Phil’ performs four concerts of choral and/or orchestral music each season, plus a very popular Family Christmas Concert.
