We are very keen to grow all areas in our string section, so please do get in touch if you are interested in joining us. You need to be able to play at least Grade 6 style pieces to be able to enjoy yourself. We do not audition people, but suggest you come and try us out - by attending a rehearsal or two and seeing how you get on. Our members are a mix of lifelong players, some late returners and some adult starters. You can listen to the pieces we are preparing here.
If you are a wind player, like many orchestras we do not have any current vacancies, but please do get in touch as sometimes opportunities arise.
Each year we like to host a 'Come and Play' Day, where we invite musicians from Letchworth and beyond to join us for the day, to work on different pieces of the orchestral repertoire.
Expertly led by our Musical Director, Rowan Baker, it's a great way to play through some fantastic music, try out the orchestra, or get together with musical friends old and new.
Sadly we have taken to postpone our September 2021 Come and Play Day due to the COVID-19 situation, but we will find a new data as soon as we feel we can bring lots of new people together safely for the day. We plan to work on Tchaikovsky's 5th Symphony, drop us an email! to be alerted to the new date by email.
