We are a really friendly orchestra and we are always happy to hear from potential new players.
We meet at Hendon School (NW4 2HP) on Monday evenings during term time, from 7.45 – 10.00pm. We’re 10 minutes from Hendon Central tube, less than 5 minutes from the bus routes on Brent Street and there is plenty of free parking on site.
You do not have to audition to become a member of our orchestra. If you have achieved grade 6 or better on your preferred instrument or you have experience of playing in an orchestra then you shouldn't have too much trouble with our repertoire. All we ask is that you commit to as many rehearsals as you can each term, practise, pay your subs and enjoy playing. There is an afternoon rehearsal on the day of concert and we encourage members to bring audience to the concerts
Like all amateur orchestras we charge a fee which is payable termly which helps to cover our costs. All new players are very welcome to come along a few rehearsals without obligation to make sure that we are the right group for you - and maybe that our area of North London is easy to get to! We do have a concession rate if you are a student, unemployed or cannot afford the full rate.
We currently have vacancies for:
Double Bass, Horn
However, we can never have too many string players!
If you would like to come along to a rehearsal to see if we are the right orchestra for you, then please get in touch with us
