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.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 virus pandemic, we are at present unable to confirm definite dates and programs for Norwich Phil concerts for the forthcoming season.

Further information will be posted here, as soon as Government guidance enables us to make firmer decisions about the way forward.
