Conductor: Darren Bloom
The Orchestra is a group of around 40 players (strings and wind and brass) that meets in St Albans on Monday evenings during term time.
We work on a set repertoire for a term, and cater for players with a range of abilities. No auditions are required although an ability to sight read will help.
Members are welcome to play solo pieces such as concerti or movements from concerti with the orchestra.
We do not give concerts, thus giving players an opportunity to tackle substantial works from the classical repertoire without the pressure of public performance. There are currently vacancies in most sections of the orchestra, use the Contact Us option to get in touch.
The Orchestra is a member of STARTS (St Albans Arts) and is affiliated to Making Music.
