Joining the orchestra

From our concert programme page and our recent events page you will see that we perform a wide range of orchestral music, often requiring a large orchestra.

There are always vacancies for good string players, particularly, at the moment, for violins and double basses. The range of music means that vacancies can also arise in the wind, brass and percussion sections. Please contact our membership secretary Fiona Hughes with details of your instrument, standard of playing and orchestral background, if you are interested in performing good music to a good standard.

The orchestra also currently has vacancies for principal cello and principal double bass. We are looking for experienced players with a good knowledge of the orchestral repertoire. The players appointed would have responsibility for fixing the cello/double bass sections for our annual season of five concerts and for liaising on bowing with the orchestra leader and other string principals. Interested players should contact our membership secretary, Fiona Hughes.

Rehearsals are held on Friday evenings from 7:30pm to 10:00pm in Honford Hall Community Centre, South Acre Drive, Handforth, SK9 3HN. South Acre Drive is off the old A34 not far from the centre of Handforth in the Wilmslow direction. Parking is available behind and in front of the Centre and in the public car park between Station Rd and South Acre Drive..
