The Crosby Symphony Orchestra

The Crosby Orchestral Society is a registered charity, one of whose objects is to develop and maintain public appreciation of music through the presentation of public concerts and recitals. Under its auspices the Crosby Symphony Orchestra gives three or four full orchestral concerts each season in the Liverpool area or farther afield. It also stages smaller scale recitals and accompanies choral singing.

The orchestra was founded in 1942 by a small group of like-minded amateurs and has grown over the years to a membership of about 60. Members come from a broad range of backgrounds and a relatively wide area, extending from mid Lancashire in the North to mid Cheshire in the South.

The orchestra's repertoire is also broad - from Mozart to Mahler, Beethoven to Bernstein and many more beyond and between. Pieces have been written especially for the orchestra, including an overture to celebrate its sixtieth anniversary.
