The original Exeter Music Group was founded in 1967 and since that time has grown to the full-scale symphony orchestra that exists today.

The EMG Symphony Orchestra provides musicians with the opportunity to perform a wide variety of repertoire and to working with talented soloists, local choirs and a professional conductor.

We perform at venues in and around Exeter, including the University Great Hall and Exeter Cathedral. Recent concerts have featured works including Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring, Mahler’s Symphony No. 8 (‘Symphony of a Thousand’) and Vaughan William’s Sea Symphony.

The Orchestra rehearses on Thursday evenings throughout the year. Subscriptions are very reasonable and membership is open to all ages.
