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.
Covid regulations permitting we will host our next Come and Play Day on Sunday September 5th 2021 between 10am and 5pm. We will be working on Tchaikovsky's 5th Symphony. You will need to bring your own lunch, but we will provide mountains of cake, tea and coffee! Please register your interest to play - do drop us an email! It will be first come, first served, particularly if numbers are limited.
