Flash Mob Surprised members of the public cheered and applauded after Nottingham Symphony Orchestras flash mobs at Nottingham Railway Station and the Victoria Centre on Sunday 7th May. The Orchestra were joined by singers from Derby Bach Choir in impromptu performances of the final movement from Beethoven's 9th Symphony, the Ode to Joy - all part of the Nottingham Peacebuilders Festival 2017.

Next Concert Experience a Russian extravaganza with Nottingham Symphony Orchestra's summer concert on Saturday 8th July in the Albert Hall. The Orchestra will be welcoming Simon Callaghan as the soloist for Rachmaninov's beautifully romantic Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. The Russian theme continues with Rachmaninov's Symphonic Dances, with Shostakovich's Jazz Suite No 2 also appearing as part of the programme in what is sure to be a thoroughly enjoyable evening of modern classics. Tickets are available via the Nottingham Playhouse Box Office (tel. 0115 941 9419) or online.
Concert Triumph! An enthusiastic audience of over 1,200 joined the Orchestra on Sunday 2nd April 2017 for Animal Magic!, a musical menagerie which featured Peter and the Wolf, Swan Lake, the UK Premier of A Propos D'Animaux 'Much Ado About Animals', and The Firebird. The evening was brilliantly hosted by Frances Finn (BBC Radio Nottingham and Notts TV presenter) and starred violin virtuoso Braimah Kanneh-Mason, the Sandra Taylor School of Dance and Stagecoach Performing Arts Southwell. The evening was particularly special for 11-year old Matthew Smith who made his conducting debut directing NSO in the Overture to Die Fledermaus. The audience rose to its feet.
