Covid Advice for Rehearsals

Whilst any members are welcome to wear their masks at all times, they would not be required whilst seated in rehearsals and merely for the purpose of walking around out of your seat.

​A reminder to all our players: please remember to sign in and out when entering/leaving the theatre.

Following a positive case within the Orchestra during the September concert, we will be continuing touse the Perspex screens and further pre-cautions that are necessary as we enter Flu season. Please make sure the you complete the Covid19 form, which has been distributed to players with the last letter, before the first rehearsal to allow close contacts with a positive case to be informed. In line with GPDR guidelines, previous forms have been destroyed securely so a new form will be required for this concert.

New players are always welcome… ​

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.
