Welcome Celebrating over 130 years of music making in Hull

The Hull Philharmonic Orchestra is recognised as one of the nation's leading amateur symphony orchestras and has been a major feature in the city's cultural landscape for over 130 years.

Performing a regular season of three concerts in Hull's magnificent City Hall, we boast a history of renowned conductors, including national figures such as Sir Henry Wood, founder of the Proms. Today under our award-winning musical director Andrew Penny, the orchestra continues to expand and develop; successfully tackling some of the most challenging works of the orchestral repertoire. The story started on June 1881 when a small group of dedicated music lovers gathered at the George Hotel in Hull and proposed the formation of an orchestral music society. With just 27 players, a devoted committee and loyal patrons, the Hull Philharmonic Society was born.

Today the orchestra has more than 80 members drawn from local professional and amateur musicians, and enjoys a broad and loyal audience base. In 1989 we were granted charitable status.
