The orchestra gives three concerts a year (November, March, and July), with ten rehearsals before each concert. We work hard with our Music Director (Richard Howarth) and our professional Leader (Alexandra Stemp) to achieve a high technical and musical standard. We also have fun…..
We meet in Mellor Church, near Blackburn, on a Tuesday evening from 7:15 until 9:30.
We are currently planning to expand the orchestra to increase our repertoire, so we are particularly looking for string players. We don’t do formal auditions – just come along to a rehearsal and make your own judgement about where and how you can fit in with us.
We have occasional vacancies for brass and woodwind players, usually by informal audition.
If you would like to join our list of people we can call on for occasional concerts, please get in touch.
