Vacancies


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!

Rehearsals are weekly and the schedule follows the school year i.e. with breaks for holidays and half terms.  We rehearse at the Walter Sickert Community Centre, N1 2FB

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!

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!

Deputies
