Join the Orchestra

Winchester Music Club Orchestra is composed of a regular group of amateur string players, with professionals brought in for the other instrument sections according to the requirements of the  programme.

When does the Orchestra rehearse?

Winchester Music Club performs two concerts a year: one (usually on a Thursday) in November in Winchester Cathedral; the second on a Saturday in late March or early April, usually in New Hall, Winchester College.

Rehearsals for the string players are on three or four Tuesday evenings preceding the concerts, from 7.30-9.30pm in Winchester College Music School.

In addition there are rehearsals for all players at the concert venues: on the Wednesday evening and Thursday afternoon for a Thursday evening November concert, and Friday evening and Saturday afternoon for the Saturday evening spring concert.

Our string players play at a very high standard. If you would like to be considered for the string orchestra please contact us by clicking below:
