Information for our Players
Update to future events
We hope that everyone who reads this page is still safe and well. We have been keeping a close eye on how the corona virus situation has been developing and, unfortunately, the current serious national situation has made it impossible for us to consider being able to put on our March concert. We are most disappointed to have to postpone yet another concert but we feel there really is no choice.
However, the commencement of the vaccination programme means we are very optimistic about being able to put on our usual September and November concerts and details of the dates and programmes to be played will be posted here shortly.
Next Concert Rehearsals
Next concert details will be posted here as soon as we are able.
Auditions are not necessary but a glance at our repertoire will indicate the level at which we play. Chandos has a professional leader and conductor and we rehearse intensively over two weekends with a concert on the second Sunday. There are usually some vacancies in the strings, although less often in other sections, but it’s worth asking! However, we will be pleased to keep your name on file for future occasions. Young players are particularly encouraged to contact us, especially if they are approaching grade 8. It is always possible to try out the orchestra in a workshop before you commit yourself.
If you decide to join your subscription will support the orchestra in maintaining its high standards and exciting repertoire. Our list of subscriptions, payment and Gift Aid details can be downloaded here: Subscriptions for 2020.
