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!
A number of our members are in the medical profession but no connection to the profession is required. A good level of orchestral music experience is useful, as is plenty of enthusiasm!
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.
