The Colne Philharmonic Orchestra has a vision to bring high quality Classical Music to our local community in North Essex.
Our players are all talented amateur players from all walks of life, but have a common goal to continuously improve the quality of our performances to the public.
As part of this vision, the CPO also aims to bring young professional soloists to Essex, often from London music colleges. This enables them to develop their own careers and at the same time enables our audiences to hear high quality concerto performances. This has proved to be a particularly rewarding part of being a player with this orchestra.
Recent concerts have included the Young Musician of the Year woodwind finalist: Lavinia Redman; performing Richard Strauss’s wonderful oboe concerto in Witham Public Hall. Indira Grier and Yume Fujise performed the Brahms Double Concerto with the CPO in our Autumn 2017 concert in Christchurch, Braintree.
Our aim is to continue with this vision into the future.
