Orchestral Days

Our regular rehearsals culminate in orchestral days twice a year. We invite additional players to these events, to fill gaps in our ranks and to give an opportunity for players who live too far away to come regularly or have other commitments on Saturday mornings. These days generally consist of rehearsals on our current repertoire in the morning and early afternoon followed by a concert or play-through. Refreshments during the day are provided by players, who are asked to bring a contribution to a communal picnic.

Orchestral Day 6th July 2019 and Concert on 7th July
This was a lovely musical weekend playing Weber Oberon Overture, Elgar Cello Concerto and Beethoven Pastoral Symphony Symphony. Our inspirational cello soloist was Sophie Rivlin, who has previously played a Haydn Cello with us. This time our normal Saturday afternoon performance in Uffculme was followed by a well-attended and much appreciated concert in All Saints Church in Dulverton on the following Sunday afternoon.

Our next Orchestral Day and Concerts

Our next orchestral day will take place on Saturday 25th January in Uffculme Church with a concert at 3pm.

This concert is likely to be repeated at 3pm on Sunday 26th July in Dulverton Church

The programme will consist of:

                                                         Rossini - Overture to Barber of Seville
                                                         Beethoven - Piano Concerto No 4

                                                         Schubert - Symphony No 8 'Unfinished'

We are very pleased to announce that Gary Cooper has agreed to play the Piano Concerto with us. I am sure he will inspire the orchestra to ever greater heights.                                                     

If you are interested in participating and would like further details as they become available, please contact us.
