The Hull Philharmonic Orchestra is one of the country’s leading amateur symphony orchestras and has been a major feature in the city’s cultural landscape for over 130 years. The story started on June 1881 when a small group of dedicated music lovers gathered at the George Hotel in Hull and proposed the formation of an orchestral music society. With just 27 players, a devoted committee and loyal patrons, the Hull Philharmonic Society was born. Today, under award-winning musical director Andrew Penny, the orchestra continues to expand and develop, successfully tackling some of the most challenging works of the orchestral repertoire.  With more than 80 members drawn from local professional and amateur musicians, the orchestra enjoys a broad and loyal audience base, and in 1989 it was granted charitable status.
