2020 concerts - MARCH 29TH CONCERT IS POSTPONED

We have booked our venue for our 4th Birthday Concert on Sunday, 29th March at 6 pm - 2020.  It's Reigate Park church and we're very grateful to be able to hire the church and church hall which have such a marvellous facilities.

North Downs Orchestra celebrates 4th Birthday Concert with new commission.


The North Downs Community Orchestra’s 4th Birthday Concert at 6pm on Sunday 29 March at Reigate Park URC will mix the music of Beethoven, Sousa, Abba and Mozart with a new composition by Richard Cross, the Orchestra’s Principal Guest Conductor.


Richard combines his work as a professional trombonist and conductor with his love of composition. He has a particular role in coaching the NDCO’s wind and brass instrument players and it is for them that he has written, ‘Beneath The Surface Of Things’. Richard says of his new work, ‘The three themes in the music develop against the backdrop of a rising tide of intensity. Then stillness, beauty and ethereal expectancy hang in the air in the music that follows … there is always another layer – Beneath The Surface of Things’.


As the Orchestra’s numbers grow, over 60 players at their last concert, so the NDCO continues to programme classics from Beethoven, Mozart and Berlioz alongside the rousing Monty Python theme music from Sousa, and their next audience sing-along medley from ABBA. Musical Director, Sara Young says, ‘We have great fun playing and we hope that our audiences share in that fun. Our players come from all over the North Downs area including Redhill and Reigate. This is our first orchestral concert in Reigate and so we look forward to meeting a new audience and enjoying wonderful music together.’


The 4th Birthday Concert is at Reigate Park URC, Park Road East, RH2 8BD at 6pm on Sunday 29 March. Tickets are £5 on the door or from members of the Orchestra. Under 18s are free. Parking and refreshments will be available.

'Something's Stirring on Godstone Green', our commissioned piece by Nick Drewe of Fine-Tune arrangements, had its World Premiere at our first birthday concert, March 2017! 

If you missed it, we played  it again on 17th June, 2018 at our recent Caterham Festival Summer Concert.  This piece is unusual in that it is constantly evolving because Nick has written extra parts as the orchestra has grown.  We still love playing it!
