Join us

Are you a muscian looking to join an orchestra?

We welcome new members of all ages, including young and developing players who have reached an appropriate standard on their instrument, as well as adult restarters and experienced players.

Membership is open to all musicians who consider themselves able to play the repertoire (some of which is fairly advanced) to a high standard, who are able to attend rehearsals and practise regularly, and subject to vacancies existing in the instrumental section concerned.

Advice is available to prospective members who are unsure as to their suitability, and there is always the opportunity to come and try a rehearsal without obligation.
