BBC Symphony Orchestra


The BBC Symphony Orchestra has played a central rôle at the heart of British musical life since it was founded in 1930. It provides the backbone of the BBC Proms, performing around a dozen concerts in the festival each year. Highlights of the 2015 Proms season included celebrations of Sibelius and Nielsen in their 150th anniversary years and the First and Last Nights, conducted by Sakari Oramo and Marin Alsop respectively.
