About the Orchestra
The Henry Desmond Orchestra is a Pops Symphony Orchestra based in Sevenoaks, Kent. A pops symphony orchestra is an orchestra that plays popular music and show tunes as well as well-known classical works. We play popular music and show tunes in a symphonic style, transforming the music our audiences already know and enjoy into a new and exciting experience.
We are unique amongst local orchestras and believe that the music we play and the performances we give have the ability to move and inspire people from all cultures and walks of life. We challenge the traditions of orchestra performances and create powerful productions and experiences that are always memorable.
We formed in 2018 and had our debut in 2019 at Sevenoaks’ premier concert venue, the 450 seat Stag Theatre. The orchestra brought audiences a taste of the West End through 2019. With the Pandemic hitting in 2020 the orchestra was forced to stop performing to live audiences. Through this time it was obvious that the business needed a new smaller option to be able to bring audiences an more intimate product, from this the HD Show Band was formed, a high level events band that can cater for all kinds of events from weddings and parties to large corporate events.
Our mission as a company is to bring high quality music and modern production techniques together to create an unforgettable multi-sensory experience for our audiences.
