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.

This season: Russian Romantics and Revolutionaries
As we approach the October 2017 centenary of the October Revolution, which transformed the Russian Empire into the Soviet Union, the Hunts Phil are delighted to present a season of Russia’s greatest choral and orchestral music. From the explosion of genius – as convincing as it was wildly improbable – at the height of the Romantic age, to the challenges to the creative spirit under the iron fist of Stalin, the music is ripe and electrifying. This is music embracing every cliché: bubbling samovars, onion-domed churches, troikas gliding through moonlit snowscapes, fantastic legends, pungent colours, fearless bravery, and immense passion. It is the sound of great culture, embracing life.
At 6:30 PM before our concerts in November, March, and July, all ticket holders are welcome to attend pre-concert talks given by specialists in the field of Russian history and music. Admission is free to all ticket holders, and the talks will last around half an hour. The bar will be open between the talks and the beginning of each concert.
