This is the only weekly group which meets in the daytime and it attracts players of all levels of experience who manage to make themselves free for a couple of hours on a Wednesday afternoon. Averaging between 30-40 participants with most instruments present for most sessions, the group can tackle almost anything from the orchestral repertoire of the last 250 years. Recently, we have played symphonies by Sibelius and Arensky, and the Autumn term promises works by Tchaikovsky and  Offenbach as well as Mozart’s ‘Sinfonia Concertante’ with guest professional soloists.
