North Downs
Community Orchestra

The North Downs Community Orchestra is a fun, friendly, amateur orchestra open to all musicians who play an orchestral instrument. We are comprised of beginners and maestros alike, and many of us have returned to music after not having played for a period of time. Our shared love of music, fun, and playing in an orchestra and ensembles is what brings us together. Open to musicians in the North Downs region of Surrey, Kent, East & West Sussex, and South London.
