The Victoria Concert Hall has been the Home of the SSO since the orchestra's founding in 1979. The 673-seat hall is part of the Victoria Theatre and Victoria Concert Hall complex which reopened in July 2014 after an extensive renovation that both preserved the historical beauty of the buildings and also created an intimate performance space for music groups of different sizes.
Working with our own musicians and international artists
The SSO works with their own musicians and international artists to present different series of music, ranging from world-class chamber performances in the VCH Presents and SSO Chamber Series, and orchestral works by the SSO, to family programmes tailored to introduce classical music to everyone.
Besides the SSO's own programmes, the VCH and its rehearsal spaces are also available for public booking through the VTVCH venue operator, which can be reached at email@example.com.
