WHO ARE WE?

We are the BSO

The Basingstoke Symphony Orchestra was formed in 1930 by local musicians for the enjoyment of making music through rehearsals and concerts. For over 60 years we were the only symphony orchestra to perform regularly in Basingstoke. The Anvil has transformed the musical scene in Basingstoke and we are now one of the many symphony orchestras who enjoy The Anvil's wonderful acoustics - likened by one expert to 'an Italian courtyard in summer'.
