We’re celebrating #volunteersweek with cake! We have a strong network of volunteers who get involved in our marketing, development and Participate teams each week – we’re incredibly grateful for their support 🙏
Do you love the music from #HarryPotter? We’ll be playing it alongside works by Stravinsky, Grieg and Mussorgsky this weekend [Sat 8 June, 3pm] – and will be joined by TV presenter, Chris Jarvis! Click on the link in our biog for tickets 🥳
It’s time for the @jamesolsenmusic BSO Instagram takeover people! 😱 I’m the composer of our epic D-Day 75 project which brings together 100 schoolchildren from the Portsmouth area singing in a massed choir, two D-Day veterans, 50 community musicians and 11 members of the BSO in a giant wind and brass-dominated orchestra, and live video, all conducted by the incredible @martagardolinska. Today we’re rehearsing everyone for the first time in the beautiful St Mary’s church, Fratton, and you can see what we get up to on the BSO Instagram story. Check out my own Instagram @jamesolsenmusic and my vlog (link in my bio) where I am documenting the entire process, the whole thing is a blast 💥 and will ramp up more over the coming days as we build to our performance on the Southsea seafront on 7 June! 🎺🥁🎷🌊 #dday75 #dday #composer #jamesolsen #communitymusic #musicforeveryone
We are delighted to announce our Elektra-fying new 2019/20 Concert Season, with R Strauss' masterpiece as the pinnacle of a high-octane year of music. Find out more over on the link in our profile 🙌

Having @sunwookkim88 in town is always a delight, even more so when he treats you to Clair de Lune as an encore after a phenomenal piano concerto performance 😁🎹🙌
