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 Brahms and Arensky, and Mozart’s ‘Sinfonia Concertante’ with guest professional soloists.
