We are an enthusiastic and friendly group of musicians who look forward to welcoming new players. While no formal auditions are held, a reasonably acceptable standard of music ability is expected: at least Grade 6 or equivalent for string players, and Grade 8 or higher for wind and brass section principals. Membership is assessed informally on this basis. Orchestral experience is, of course, highly advantageous.
Vacancies currently exist in all string sections, and we are always pleased to discuss future playing opportunities with other players. Please contact the secretary by email.
Rehearsals are held at 7:30 to 9:30 pm on Wednesday evenings during school term time at the North Street Halls, North Street, Hornchurch, RM11 1QX.
