Kent's only specialist string orchestra, based near Faversham.


OSO operates a mailing list to keep you in touch with the orchestra's activities. If you would like to be added to the mailing list, send your details to the Treasurer.

You can also support the orchestra in other ways: most effectively by attending our concerts! Season tickets offer a good way of economising on the three concerts of the normal season. If you feel that you could advertise our concerts, posters and handbills are usually available from the President..

This year we are very pleased to have received sponsorship from Thorneloe & Co., Solicitors and from Faversham Strings. If you would like to consider becoming a sponsor of the orchestra the Chairman would be very pleased to discuss the possibilities with you.

We are always pleased to receive suggestions for works to include in our repertoire from members of the audience. We cannot guarantee to perform specific pieces, but all suggestions are seriously considered and have in the past introduced us to some pieces that we might not otherwise have known.

In 2018 we introduced the concept of sponsoring a work. If you would like your name, or that of your company, associated with one of the works in our programme a donation of £100 will ensure that your receive publicity both in the programme notes and press releases. If you are interested in this idea, please talk to the Chairman or President..

If you have attended our concerts in the past, you will know that we hold a raffle (the running of which does not interfere in any way with the programme). If you would like to donate an item as a raffle prize, please contact any of the Committee.

We make no charge for tickets for children of school age who are accompanied by an adult, because we are anxious to encourage future generations of concert-goers. Please take advantage of this opportunity to introduce young people to the world of string music.
