Percussion 'Master Class'!
Our Sleigh Ride at St John's Concert has some rather challenging pieces for our recently formed percussion section!
We were very lucky to obtain the services of Richard Scarff to spend an afternoon advancing technique and finding solutions to the big question marks for this programme - things like making horses hooves sounds without the use of coconuts!
For further details please read the latest entry in our Percussion Project page.
We are very pleased to introduce our Musical Director, Sara Young.
During the summer break, Sara was working with our Rep Group to bring together another exciting new programme of music to prepare for our concert on Saturday, 30th November. Join us for a splendid Sleigh Ride!
Something for everyone - the usual eclectic mix, this time including some Christmas music and Singalong Carols as well as classical, pop and films.
Our orchestra is now quite big but there are gaps!
As a Community Orchestra, we always to do our best to accommodate new members. Do get in touch if you would like to give playing in our orchestra a try. We have parts for all orchestral instruments and we don't limit the numbers of popular instruments.
Plenty of room for more, we have a big rehearsal venue! You could also check us out at our next concert.
We're a fun, friendly, amateur Orchestra open to all musicians who play an orchestral instrument. Our members live in the stunning North Downs region of Surrey, Kent, East & West Sussex & Southern London.
In our ranks we're beginners, maestros and the rather rusty who haven't played for a while. Our shared love of music, fun and giving a chance to those who want the opportunity to play in an Orchestra is what brings us together. It is not complicated but it is great fun.Join us on this fantastic journey.
