Són is Southampton’s new orchestra, an exciting and vibrant professional chamber orchestra formed in 2015. They are a regular visitor to Turner Sims, performing a concert series and related family events in one of the south’s leading concert halls. Their commitment to youth music is epitomised by supersónic, one of their projects run in collaboration with Southampton Music Hub, offering 60 youngsters their first full-orchestra experience in an immersive three day summer workshop.
“Since their sell-out inaugural concert in 2015 són – under their visionary director Robin Browning – have brought a new energy to music in the city and beyond. Their imaginative approach to programming and concert format is matched by a quality in presentation and performance. Crucially this is complemented by creative use of social media and online promotional material to communicate their message that many other more longstanding groups could learn a lot from.”
