We currently have room for more strings and brass players.  Don’t worry if you’re out of practice – come along to a rehearsal and give us a try!

Some of our members are in the medical or related professions but this is in no way obligatory and most are not. A good level of orchestral music experience is useful, as is plenty of enthusiasm!

Horn players

See our rehearsals page for full details of when and where we rehearse.  We perform three concerts a year: Christmas, Spring and Summer.

Each of the string sections is led by a professional who has lots of playing experience. We think this helps improve technique and boost confidence, and makes the orchestra really enjoyable to play in!


Although we are not looking for woodwind players at the moment, we’d still like to hear from you, particularly if you’re available to deputise. We’ll also keep you in mind when we have vacancies in these sections.


General funding of the LMO is via membership subscription. This pays for the costs of rehearsal venue hire, music hire, professional fees, insurance and general running costs of the orchestra.

Subscription rates for the 2019-2020 season are:

  • £75 per term (£40 concessions) or
  • £225 for the year (£120 concessions).

The Orchestra is a registered charity and your subscription may be enhanced at no cost to you by signing a Gift Aid form.
