Repertoire Days

We have a number of Repertoire Days and evenings throughout the year, where prospective members can come and join us, play for the whole day without the pressure of a concert, and get a feel for the type of repertoire we tackle. These are fun, informal sessions that are reflective of our regular rehearsal style.

Please contact us via our Joining page to register your interest in these events. Whilst there are always spaces for upper strings, we do have to limit our wind and brass attendance. We do ask for a contribution to help cover the cost of venue and music hire, but if this prevents you from attending, we will always discuss how we might be able to help.

All repertoire session are organised and managed in line with all relevant guidance at the time.
