The NSO has a central role in the musical life of Norfolk. We perform five concerts a year, mostly in the King’s Lynn Corn Exchange, a high quality venue seating over 700 people.
We work hard to produce music of the highest quality, bringing exciting programmes to an area of Norfolk that does not have many opportunities to hear symphonic music.
We also contribute to the community in many ways. We give local musicians the opportunity to play in a full symphony orchestra. The NSO has been a hot house for local musical talent for many years. We give young musicians the chance to step up to a different level of their musical development; several of our young players have gone on to music college and then into the music profession.
We offer reduced tickets to Friends of the orchestra and free tickets to the under 18’s, making our music as accessible as possible
Our Conductor: Steve Bingham
Steve studied violin with Emmanuel Hurwitz, Sidney Griller and the Amadeus Quartet at the Royal Academy of Music from 1981 to 1985, where he won prizes for orchestral leading and string quartet playing. In 1985 he formed the Bingham String Quartet, an ensemble which has become one of the foremost in the UK, with an enviable reputation for both classical and contemporary repertoire. The Quartet has recorded numerous CDs and has worked for radio and television both in the UK and as far afield as Australia. The Quartet has worked with distinguished musicians such as Jack Brymer, Raphael Wallfisch, Michael Collins and David Campbell. Steve has conducted amateur and student orchestras and ensembles for many years and has been working with us since Autumn 2019.
