As a result of the ongoing Covid 19 crisis we have sadly had to suspend all normal orchestral activities.

However, we are optimistic that we will be able to restart some limited rehearsals in early September. This will likely be for string players only due to the restrictions currently being imposed on amateur woodwind and brass players.

We don’t want our woodwind and brass sections to feel left out though so we are planning regular Zoom rehearsals with these sections until we are given the all clear to rehearse normally again.


We will keep this website updated with news bulletins as the situation develops but if you would like to know more or would like to attend any of our rehearsals then we always welcome new members. Please contact us via our contact page for more information.
