Surrey Mozart Players

Join Guildford-based chamber orchestra, the Surrey Mozart Players, when we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic and the autumn /winter restrictions. We are planning to start our music-making with a socially distanced rehearsal on 27th June 2021 at Pirbright Village Hall.

We have some spectacular concerts provisionally arranged for 2021 and 2022, with a season finale featuring Sasha Sitkovetsky as our soloist.

We hope you stay well during this difficult time and we send warmest wishes from the whole orchestra.

NEXT CONCERT - Saturday 25th September 2021 , Holy Trinity Church, Guildford 7.30pm

We are delighted to present this concert to open our 2021-22 season. Celebrating the orchestra’s namesake, two Mozart chamber works are on the programme – the Adagio and Fugue for Strings and the Wind Serenade. Lucy Humphris, one of the UK’s most innovative and versatile young performers will be performing Hummel’s famous, and famously challenging, trumpet concerto. The concert ends with Beethoven’s ever-popular Symphony No. 1. Performing in Holy Trinity Church’s wonderful acoustic, this promises to be a perfect opportunity to experience once more the wonder of live classical music in a beautiful setting.

CONCERTS .. 2019-2020

Here is a link to a slideshow highlighting a few memories from concerts in 2019 and the last concert we gave before the March 2020 lock-down. One of these concerts was conducted by Christopher McMullen-Laird, who died suddenly on 18th June 2020 aged just 36. The orchestra is organising a fitting memorial to this extraordinary young man.


“SMP must surely be a contender for one of the best amateur orchestras in the UK”.

Edward Farmer, July 2019
