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.

Due to the updated advice from the government in relation to the coronavirus pandemic, we have unfortunately had to cancel this Saturday’s concert in the Victoria Halls.

Please use the sub menus to have a look round the site and find out more.


We are currently looking for new members for the orchestra of the following instruments – violin, viola, cello, double bass, French horn and bass trombone. Players must be approximately Grade 5 standard or equivalent and commit to attending rehearsals. Interested? We’d love to hear from you!
