Rehearsals run from 7:45pm to 10pm on Monday evenings in term time
We rehearse for 2 hours each Monday and we make sure we have a 15 minute coffee break! For most rehearsals we play as a full orchestra but once a term we split into sectional groups (string and brass/wind) to concentrate on particular aspects of the repertoire.
We play in the school dining room which is open from 7:15pm. It allows us plenty of space to set up so you won't feel cramped!
Hendon School is very accessible from the North Circular, A41 and A1 and there is plenty of parking. The school is a 12 minute walk from Hendon Central tube station (Northern Line) and buses run along Brent Street (to and from Golders Green) which is a 5 minute walk from the school. We can usually arrange a lift from rehearsals to public transport if that helps.
We publish the rehearsal schedule as far ahead as possible as this helps our players plan attendance and their practise (we promise we don't check how much personal practise everyone does!)
