How to join


If you would like to become a member of the Orchestra, we invite you to attend rehearsals for a trial period of one month, after which we hope to be able to welcome you as a new Member. Players must give evidence of musical ability and are expected to attend regularly at rehearsals and concerts.

Although we are always glad to hear from any prospective new member, we currently have vacancies for :

Strings - violins, violas, basses
Brass - horn, 1st trombone, bass trombone and tuba
Percussion

Rehearsals are held weekly in the Community Hall at Samuel Cody Specialist Sports College in Farnborough on Tuesdays from 8 until 10 pm, with a short break for coffee.  There are short breaks at Christmas and during the Summer holiday period.

The Orchestra is currently entirely self-supporting.  Members pay an annual subscription of £100, payable in September, which may be gift-aided. Second and subsequent members of a family are eligible for a 50% discount and we do not ask for a subscription from students.

The friendly atmosphere has been enhanced by concert trips in the past to Rushmoor’s twin towns, Oberursel in Germany and Meudon in France. There are usually social events at Christmas and in the summer.

If you would like to apply, please
e-mail our Secretary for more details.  It would be helpful if you could also include a telephone number.
