Hitchin Chamber Orchestra

A friendly string orchestra based in Hitchin aiming to present high standard concerts in the town’s lovely venues. Music played covers a wide variety of different styles and genres and the orchestra often collaborates with guest instrumentalists and singers.

What makes an orchestra like HCO tick?

Fundamentally, it is the deep desire of a dedicated group of musicians to enjoy, together, something profoundly important to them and to share this experience with the wider community.

We are hugely grateful to our followers, both new and old, for their support which enables our continuing programme of concert making to thrive.
