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

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.
