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 July 2017
We had an amazing day on 20th January,  Our concert opened with SIbelius Karelia Suite, which was followed by a truly astonishing performance of Haydn Cello Concerto No.2 in D given by Sophie Rivlin, a member of the Metier Ensemble, who have previously coached the orchestra and performed locally. The concert was concluded by an exciting performance of Schumann Symphony No.3.. This was yet another challenging programme and probably our best ever performance.
Thank you to all who participated and attended.
