We aim to provide an environment for adult learners and returners to experience and enjoy orchestral playing. As such, there are no formal auditions for new members. We want to give adult "learner and returner" musicians the opportunity to experience playing in an orchestra. In order to gain the most enjoyment we do however suggest an approximate playing standard of Associated Board Grade 6 or above for wind and Grade 5 or above for strings (exams need not have been taken). Check the vacancies to see if there is one for you, and if so, fill out the membership application form below to apply to join.
Membership subscription: £40 per term (no joining fee); 3 weeks trial free.
We rehearse on a Thursday evening from 7.30 - 9.30 pm at St Barnabas Church in Weeke (West Winchester). St Barnabus is a stately, modern building and we are privileged to use the main space of the church.
