BHAO is a Brighton & Hove community orchestra created in 2008, providing the opportunity for musicians of all ages and abilities to come together to play classical music. Members of the orchestra are mostly amateurs with a few professional musicians, all of whom enjoy the opportunity of playing in a friendly orchestra in their local community.

Our Musical Director is Brighton based composer Patrick Harrex.
