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.

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.
