Playing Standard & Auditions

There are usually no auditions for the orchestra, but as a guide, members have normally reached Grade 8.  Selection procedures occasionally have to be applied in relation to any over-subscribed woodwind seats (although we also keep a waiting list for these instruments).

The orchestra meets on Tuesday evenings during the season (September to June) from 7.00pm to 9.30pm. To view the current rehearsal schedule, please click here.
