Your favorite orchestra names

Recommended Posts

Do you prefer "Symphony Orchestra" or "Philharmonic Orchestra"?

What about various alternative names out there?

I like the simplicity and elegance of plain names like Minnesota Orchestra. I also like the rather romantic name of the old radio band "Symphony of the Air." Orchestra of the 18th Century is a cool, descriptive name.

Nothing immediately comes to mind.  Do string quartets count?  If so, what about the Quatuor Sine NominexD

The name Houston Symphony is a bit lacking, IMO.  Fortunately, probably the biggest chamber orchestra in town, Mercury Chamber Orchestra, has a better name in my opinion.

The Philharmonia has a nice simple. warm glow about it. 

The Academy of St. Martin in the Fields is descriptively quaint.

The Harmonious Society of Tickle-Fiddle Gentlemen is certainly an interesting name...especially since one of their CDs contains the music of Gottfried Finger!  xD

Gottfried Finger: Music For European Courts And Concerts ...
Quote

Taking its name from the poet Ned Ward's description of the musicians who played at one of the world's first series of public concerts in London, The Harmonious Society of Tickle-Fiddle Gentlemen was founded in London in 2006 to explore the neglected repertoire of public concert life in England in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries.
