WELCOME TO 

ST GILES ORCHESTRA

St Giles Orchestra is one of Oxford's leading non-professional orchestras and has been based in the city for over 40 years.

We are a full-sized orchestra that plays a wide repertoire of large-scale symphonic works. We usually perform four times a year to fulfil our primary goals as a registered charity, which are to promote and develop an appreciation of music for our members and the public.

MAKE A GIFT

As a not for profit charity, St Giles Orchestra relies on more than just ticket sales to keep our music alive.

Every donation, no matter the size, makes a difference and helps to bring the power and joy of music to people in and beyond the concert hall.

NEW COMPOSERS

We have a long tradition running back over 40 years of introducing new pieces to the orchestral repertoire from local composers.

If you would like us to consider premiering or playing your new work, then please get in touch.
