We welcome, and endeavour to accommodate,
those individuals who wish to join. For this reason, we do not
hold formal auditions and there is no set criteria for membership.
There is a fee for membership of £50 per term (Annual £140, Annual Concession £90), this
covers music hire costs and supports the general administration of
String players are invited along to a rehearsal
then 'self select' by either aspiring (or not) to the repertoire
and our approach. As a guide, a playing level of Grade VI or above
would be necessary to contribute fully.
Wind players, (if and when a place is available)
would be required to have a trial period. The standard is high.
We try to be as 'open access' as we can as it is
very much a community orchestra run primarily for its members and
those interested in supporting them in performance.
Key positions (principals) are usually recruited
directly by David Knight or other existing principals.
