The Huntingdonshire Philharmonic Society, affectionately known as Hunts Phil, performs five or six concerts each year.
We perform a variety of choral and orchestral works to suit every taste. Our Christmas performances are especially popular.
The Society always welcomes new members and at present is keen to attract additional singers, brass and string players. The emphasis of rehearsals is that of enjoyment and learning, whilst working to present performances of a high standard to our audiences.
We look forward to performing for you.

|Daniel Benn, cello|
|Sibelius||Symphony No. 2|
Dvořák’s last concerto has been described as “the most beloved cello concerto in the repertory”. This deeply personal Slavic work was received with great acclaim at its first performance in London in 1896 and it has remained a repertoire favourite ever since. We are delighted to welcome back gifted young cellist Daniel Benn as soloist.
The second symphony is the most popular of Sibelius’s seven symphonies and has frequently been hailed as his great Romantic masterpiece. Sibelius himself wrote of it as “a struggle between death and salvation” and “a confession of the soul”.
