Watford Philharmonic Society’s Orchestra and Choir

The Watford Philharmonic Society was founded in 1935 in association with Sir Henry Wood, of BBC Proms fame.

With over 170 members in our choir & orchestra, Watford Philharmonic is now one of the largest amateur choral societies in the country. We perform 4 or 5 full-scale concerts each year, mainly at the Watford Colosseum. We also participate in a number of local events, often raising money for charities. Our members sometimes perform at Weddings and other private events too.

Our repertoire includes major choral and orchestral works both classical and modern. We also organise several social gatherings and provide opportunities for our members to join in musical events in the area.

The Society is run by its subscribing members, with a small team of professionals and honorary members to support its commitment to the highest musical standards.
