‘Formerly known as Hitchin Concert Orchestra, was founded in 1929 by Mary Ibberson at the Rural Music Schools Association. The orchestra was for many years run as an evening class at North Hertfordshire College but, when the College authorities decided in 1997 that artistic ventures such as the orchestra were no longer financially supportable, it became a self-governing body and changed its name. The orchestra’s motto is “Promoting Live Music” and its aim is to promote live orchestral music in the Hitchin area by providing audiences with symphonic concerts performed to a high standard and to serve as a concert platform for local musicians, whether orchestral players or soloists.’
