Rehearsals run from 7:45pm to 9:45pm 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 try to split into sectional groups (string and brass/wind) to concentrate on particular aspects of the repertoire.
The Free Church has plenty of space to rehearse in. We can be COVID compliant if we need to - and we can be sure to make all our players feel safe.
Hampstead Garden Suburb is easily accessible from the North Circular and A1 and there is plenty of parking. The church is a 15-20 minute walk from Golders Green tube station (Northern Line). The H2 bus runs from Golders Green station and stops by the church. We can always help to arrange a lift from rehearsals to public transport (or home) 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!)
