The Chichester Symphony Orchestra is the oldest local secular amateur musical ensemble. It can trace its history back to the establishment of the Chichester Orchestral Society in 1889. There has been a collaboration with the Cathedral from the early days with the appointment of Frederick Crowe, the Organist, as its conductor in the early years and again in the 1920s. 

Read about its Leader, Natalia Corolscaia.

​​Chichester Cathedral’s Lunchtime Concert series is self-supporting, and thrives through the generosity of its audiences. While there is no charge for admission, we suggest a minimum donation of £3 per person, with Gift Aid applied if possible.
