About Us

Registered Charity, The Sussex Symphony Orchestra has been bringing live music to Sussex audiences for over 20 years.
We believe classical music should be accessible to everyone & we share our finest music-making with people of all ages and backgrounds. The SSO is a friendly, sociable mixture of professional and amateur musicians who live and work in Sussex. We’re run entirely by volunteers who dedicate their time to make our orchestra exceptional.
