New term September 2017

The web site has been quiet, but the orchestra is still thriving!

The end-of-term Soirée is likely to be Thursday 6 December 2017.  If lots of orchestra people can’t do that date, it may yet move to the following week.

The Soirée is where we play our music to “friendly eavesdroppers” (mostly friends and family).  We call it a Soirée because a concert sounds more formal and scary!

If you’re thinking you might like to join the orchestra, coming along to the Soirée is a great way to get a little sample of what we’ve been up to, and have a chat.  If you’d like to come along and listen, it’s free.  Please get in touch first and let us know, as space is limited.

Whether or not you’re free to come to the Soirée this term, you’re always welcome to get in touch for more information.

Looking towards Christmas already!

Looking forward to the Winter 2016 Soirée. Please get in touch if you’d like to visit or join the orchestra.
