Joining

There are no auditions for membership. Some sections of the orchestra are over subscribed but there are vacancies, particularly for strings.

The easiest way to join us is to come to a rehearsal. The rehearsal schedule is found on our Current Activities page and directions to the rehearsal venue are given on the Find Us page. You will be sure to receive a warm welcome and any member of the orchestra will introduce you to the conductor and leader and find you a place to sit. Alternatively membership enquiries can be made to Duncan Gillies tel: 020 8671 1337 (evenings and weekends) or by email .

Subscriptions & Concessions

Subscriptions are £70 per term. Students and others on a modest income may request a concession (normally £35). Subscriptions are payable at the beginning of term and may be paid by direct bank transfer (preferred) or cash, cheque or standing order.
