Rehearsals resume!

We have resumed our in-person rehearsals, following our Covid19 protocol and Government guidance. 


This year marks our 30th Anniversary and we have an exciting schedule of events for the year ahead. We are currently rehearsing for our Spring Concert, this year we will be taking you 'Round the World and into Space' in just under 80 minutes!  With music ranging from the musical Chicago to Apollo 13.  The Spring Concert was held at Alton Maltings Centre, on the 26th of March 2022.  Check out our Upcoming Events page for news of our Summer Concert 'A Night at the Proms' in Whitehill & Bordon on the 9th of July 2022!


If you are not yet a member of ACO then now is an ideal time to make contact and join in the fun. Please visit our contact page for more information.


There are a number of new rules which need to be adhered to for our 'live rehearsals' at The Maltings, so please visit our Back To Playing page for all of the detail. 




Alton Concert Orchestra is based in the market town of Alton in the East Hampshire District of Hampshire. We have around 60 keen musicians and are always pleased to welcome more brass and string players. We put on three or more concerts a year, including the very popular ‘Last Night of the Proms’ held in Alton Public Gardens for the past 15 years.



We practice every Wednesday evening from 7.30 - 9.30pm during term time at Wootey's Junior School in Alton, Hampshire.  If you are interested in finding out more please send us a message via the contact page.
