Alton Concert Orchestra is based in the market town of Alton in the East Hampshire District of Hampshire. We have around 60 keen musicians and are always pleased to welcome more string players. We put on three or more concerts a year, including the very popular ‘Last Night of the Proms’ in Alton Public Gardens in July each year.
This term we are working towards our Spring Concert which will take place in April 2019. After half-term will be getting into the festive spirit with music for the Wonder of Christmas Concert on the 15th December this year!
