The Glasgow Symphony Orchestra is an amateur orchestra established over 40 years ago by Dorothy Gunnee, who still plays timpani  in the orchestra  and Tom Kent . Rehearsals started in the Dolphin Centre (Gorbals), in 1975 under the tutelage of Tom Kent. The orchestra  moved to our current home, Notre Dame High School in Glasgow's west end a couple of years later . The orchestra‚Äôs current conductor, Tommy Fowler, has been with the GSO since 1998 .

The orchestra has performed with many top class players and well planned programmes have included a variety of well known and less familiar works. In 2013 GSO performed in St Mary;s, Glasgow's beautiful Episcopal Cathedral , as part of the West End Festival
