Helensburgh Orchestral Society


The Helensburgh Orchestral Society was established in 1957 under the direction of Bryden Thomson. The Orchestra continues to thrive as a focus for amateur orchestral music in the Helensburgh and West of Scotland vicinity.

The Orchestra meets once a week at the Victoria Halls, Helensburgh from September through to March or May/June.

Our next concert is on Saturday 26th October at 7.30pm in the Victoria Halls. Please go to the Concerts page for more information on upcoming performances.


We are always keen to welcome new members to the orchestra! You should be of Grade 5 standard, or equivalent, and able to commit to attending rehearsals. We generally have vacancies for strings, lower brass and percussion. If you are interested, please go to our membership page for more details.
