Tyneside

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 represented, the ensemble is usually of symphony orchestra proportions and is happy to tackle almost anything from the orchestral repertoire of the last 250 years, such as Grieg, Dvorak, Holst, Mendelssohn, Chabrier, Malcolm Arnold and even Nielsen’s monumental 2nd Symphony ‘The Four Temperaments’. Another feature of this group are visits from guest soloist and conductors, including the Italian soprano Barbara Gentili. ‘Virtual Play Alongs’ have been enjoyed on Zoom in 2021, with Andy using cards to show rehearsal marks and bar numbers!

Summerhill is a lovely place to play. We have a concert party and picnic every summer. For Autumn 2021, the group will meet at St Matthew’s Hall as this is a larger venue. There is no on site parking but nearby free parking can be found within 5-10 mins walk, and large instruments can be dropped off prior to parking.
