Orchestra of Square Chapel

Great music in a perfect setting

In the early 20th century Square Chapel had its own “Square Orchestra” – and Orchestra of Square Chapel have continued this tradition. We have presented over 100 concerts of high-quality small-scale orchestral music at Square Chapel since 1998.

In the heart of Halifax, Square Chapel stands next to the Piece Hall and within easy reach of Halifax town centre and railway station. To quote Jessica Sutcliffe, founder trustee, “No one enters Square Chapel without being impressed by its extraordinary space, light and decayed elegance.”
