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. New players are welcome at any time during the year. The range of music means that vacancies can also arise in the wind, brass and percussion sections. Concessionary subscription rates are available. Please contact our membership secretary Fiona Hughes with details of your instrument, standard of playing and orchestral background.
The orchestra currently has a vacancy for principle cello.
Here is our leader, Rosy, with the details.
